San Francisco General Strike Walk
Join a walk with historian Luis Prisco, ILWU Local 10 longshoreman Jack Heyman and others. This walk and history talk will look at the causes of the 1934 General Strike that made San Francisco a union town and why it was successful. How was the strike organized and why are the issues in that strike still relevant to working people today? Also you will walk by the key historical sites in this important US labor struggle that along with the 1934 general strikes of Minneapolis and Toledo made possible the 1935 Social Security Act and Unemployment Insurance Act. Bring your lunch with you.
Please sign-up for this tour by calling Louis Prisco at 415-841-1254, or e-mail: penguinflow [at] hotmail.com
