The second solidarity concert in San Francisco was held for the striking Alabama UMWA Local 2245 miners on July 23, 2021 at BlackRock San Francisco offices. BlackRock controls the Warrior Met Coal mine that UMWA miners have been fighting on the picketline for over 4 months. The miners are fighting against a wage long wage freeze and worsening health and safety conditions. They have also been hit and injured by scabs trying to cross the picket line. BlockRock is trying to break the strike by bringing in scabs and busting the union.
