LaborFest is an annual festival celebrating the history and culture of working people through film, art, lectures, and exhibits all over the Bay Area from July 2-31, 2016.

The festival commemorates the 82nd anniversary of 1934’s “Bloody Thursday” when two workers were shot and killed in San Francisco for supporting the longshoremen and maritime workers strike. The incident brought about the San Francisco General Strike.

In 2016 the festival also marks the 100th Year of Easter Uprising and the 100th anniversary of the Preparedness Day bombing on Market St..

Opening Day Forum | 2016 LaborFest | July 2-31

Come to an open regular meeting of FORUM (Federation of Retired Union Members), an organization of retirees affiliated with the San Francisco Labor Council on July 1, 2014.

Retirees come from a spectrum of unions from throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. FORUM supports alliances between working people and retired people to preserve and improve health care, Social Security and pension and retirement benefits.

The July program will briefly highlight the members’ current activities, focusing on personal recollections of the 1934 General Strike and other significant labor actions. Anyone with stories to share is especially welcomed to come and share their memories. Refreshments will be served.
