Mon, 07/06/2015
Joe Clement talks with Ryan Wisnor about Blood Wednesday, a labor battle fought during the auspicious year of 1934, when general strikes erupted in Portland and other West Coast port cities. In particular, striking longshoreworkers blocked the train that runs near Pier Park and were met with police, who fired on the workers and sent them running for cover in the Douglas Firs. Thought they suffered losses that day, the strikers ultimately prevailed through community support and helped galvanize workers up and down the West Coast. 11:40 minutes (5.34 MB)
