75 Years

One Day in July Minneapolis Truckers Strike - Photo Hosted at Buzznet

This is one of my favorite flyers. I made it to support an awesome point in US history.

Five years a group of local activists, including myself, put on a street festival celebrating 70 years since the 1934 Truckers Strike that made Minneapolis a union town and crushed the "Minneapolis Citizens Alliance". Today, six veterans of that struggle met again to see if we could do another festival this year. I think it might actually happen. I certainly hope so. More info to come.
