2009 marks the 90th anniversary of the Seattle General Strike. This is the second part in a series on that event. This week, Indymedia presents a speech by Howard Kimeldorf, Professor of Sociology, University of Michigan, given at the anniversary celebration held in the Seattle Labor Temple. He describes, to an enthusiastic crowd, a bit of radical Seattle's history, along with the circumstances of the Seattle General Strike, and the syndicalism it exhibited. Recorded live on 2/7/9, his presentation is "Historical Legacies of the IWW and Workers Control." Those interested in labor will be fascinated to hear the details and see the photos of the first general strike in the US. Activists will marvel at some radical history they probably haven't heard before.
