Organizer/Author
Every July day has Laborfest events, some of which are missing from the red letter listings. This "al fresco" textbook for all of us will teach the importance of a general strike which we need to put an end to the profit motive that is the cause of the budget "crisis" and war. On July 25 at 7 p.m. at the ILWU hall on Second St near King, join us for a multi-labor chorus tribute to Pete Seeger as the world celebrates his 90th birthday.
