Labor’s Turning Point is a riveting documentary of the 1934 Minneapolis truck drivers’ strike whose history helps explain how U.S. workers won the right to organize unions to fight for social security, minimum wages and other workers rights. This May Day Celebration, which honors the international workers holiday, features a screening of John de Graaf’s gripping film that chronicles how the strikes were built and won—they broke the power of the anti-union Citizen’s Alliance and made Minneapolis a union town—by the tenacity and ingenuity of the strikers and the groundbreaking role of the strikers’ wives.
The event will provide plenty of time for discussion and invited comments, particularly of lessons for current labor battles.
The film will start at 7:30 p.m. at Solidarity Hall, 2170 W. Washington Blvd., L.A. (Off the 10 freeway on bus lines #30, 31 &35). Door donation is .00.
A hearty strike kitchen dinner is served at 6:30pm. for a .00 donation.
