San Francisco General Strike Walk

Laborfest was organized in 1994 in commemoration of the 1934 San Francisco General Strike that made San Francisco a union town, and with the 1934 strikes in Minneapolis and Toledo, made possible in 1935, Social Security, unemployment insurance and the right to organize labor unions.
Join the walk with Gifford Hartman and others.
Eighty-two years ago at this location, a great battle took place by workers and 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 from that strike still relevant to working people today? We will also view some of the key historical sites in this important US labor struggle.
