The Ludlow Massacre

Woody Guthrie sings about the Ludlow Massacre, in which 20 people were killed for striking against coal mine operators in 1914. Happy Labor Day! Enjoy your day off, but give a thought to organized labor, which is what this day is all about.

Start the summer with remebrence of the massacre of steel workers in Chicago on Memorial Day at a family picnic event (
And ends with this.
Alas there have probably been enough massacres of workers by "law enforcement" to fill a calendar.
These types of events and impunity from repercussions are what the police mean when they say they want to go back to when police were "respected" ( feared) and people like demented donnie babble about law and order.
