San Francisco General Strike Walk
Join a walk with historian Luis Prisco, ILWU Local 10 longshoreman Jack Heyman and musician David Rovics. This walk and history talk will look at the causes of the 1934 General Strike and why it was successful. We will discuss how the strike was organized and why the issues in that strike are still relevant to working people today. We will also walk by the key historical sites in this important US labor struggle. Bring your lunch with you and wear good walking shoes so you can get your day's exercise and labor history lesson at the same time.
