Against the Grain: Mon 10.31.11| Occupy and Strike

In 1946 workers struck across Oakland and closed the city down for three days. On November 2nd, a general strike and mass day of action have been called by Occupy Oakland to shut down the wealthiest one percent of the population. Labor historian Gifford Hartman discusses the 1946 — and 1934 — general strike, while movement scholars Cynthia Kaufman and Eddie Yuen explore the strengths, weaknesses, and future of the Occupy Wall Street protests.
