2019 LaborFest | July 2-31
Join the best labor maritime boat trip in the world as we go to historical sites on the bay and the Oakland container port. We will hear about our working class history, and how the SF General Strike helped shape the character of San Francisco and the Bay Area. Labor historians Gray Brechin, Harvey Schwartz, Harvey Smith, Lawrence Shoup and labor photographer Joseph Blum will speak. We will hear about union organizing struggles facing labor and our communities today.
July 14 is the birthday of troubadour Woody Guthrie and the 230th anniversary of Bastille Day. Labor musicians will sing out about the struggles of working people and you can join in. There will also be a meal making this the best happening in San Francisco. Come one, come all and experience of our great bay maritime tour.
