The 150th Anniversary Of The San Francisco Chronicle, Class Struggle And Labor
This year is the 150th anniversary of the San Francisco Chronicle. It has played an important role in the political and economic history of San Francisco in the development of San Francisco from the early "big four" multi-millionaires Stanford, Crocker, Hopkins and Huntington to the media tech moguls who now manipulate politics and development in San Francisco including the ethnic cleansing "redevelopment" of African Americans and Latinos and the removal of the working class and poor from San Francisco. The paper's owners in the past and present have also had a war against the workers at the San Francisco Chronicle. The printers union has been busted by outsourcing and the attacks continue on union workers at the paper. We will look at the lessons of the 1994 San Francisco Chronicle 11 day newspaper strike.
Initial Speakers:
Dr. Gray Brechin is a historical geographer, author of "Imperial San Francisco." He is currently a visiting scholar in the U.C. Berkeley Department of Geography and founder and project scholar of the Living New Deal Project. He is one of the leading experts in the history and role of the San Francisco Chronicle in San Francisco and California.
John Holmes is a retired member of the CWA Media Workers and a member of the Typographers Union unit who was active during the 1994 strike.
Sponsored by FUUS and Labor Video Project
