SF General Strike Walk
Meet at Harry Bridges Plaza - Plaza in front of Ferry Building, at the south side tower, San Francisco.
Join the walk with Gifford Hartman and others.
Eighty-one years ago at this location, a great battle took place by the workers and the residents of San Francisco against the police and National Guard.
We will look at the causes of the 1934 General Strike and why it was successful. How was the strike organized and why are the issues in that strike still relevant to working people today? We will also view some of the key historical sites in this important US labor struggle.
