In the city of Gladstone, Oregon, south of Portland in Clackamas County, a group of citizens continues its frustrating attempts to keep the city from selling a popular park.

Tue, 02/02/2016
Old Mole and labor historian, Norm Diamond, offers some critical history surrounding the namesake of a hip new bar in Portland, Loyal Legon. Rather than a union in any good faith sense of that word, the Loyal Legon of Loggers and Lumbermen were a creation of the US military. The "loyal legon" were formed to break strikes and organizing efforts against poor conditions in the timber industries, union activity that threatened profit and war-production. 7:42 minutes (7.04 MB)
