Message to the Reader

The year 2021 is the year of the 100th anniversary of the Industrial Workers of the World, commonly known as the Wobblies. The CIO has informed us that this year’s Labor Day has been canceled. It would have been the 105th anniversary of the formation of the American labor movement. I hope that the time has passed when the labor movement had to be reminded to observe the day. Further, I hope that in 2021 the labor movement finds it equally important to remember the struggles that preceded the October 28th, 1886 Haymarket Affair, as the Boston Massacre was to the October 16th, 1775 Boston Tea Party. What can we learn from those memories? What would be the sign if the Industrial Workers of the World spent the next 100 years as the Boston Tea Party did?
