San Francisco's class relations were changed forever by the General Strike of 1934. But few remember the momentous general strike that erupted in Oakland in 1946. Both strikes will be described and analyzed. Speakers: Gifford Hartman and Chris Carlsson

Afterwards, join a discussion about finding ways to express our solidarity with struggles today.
