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 1-31, 2018.

The festival commemorates the 84th 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.

2018 LaborFest | July 1-31

Two independently produced videos will explore San Francisco labor movement history and current efforts to protect the Redstone Labor Temple (yet again!) from redevelopers and keep it as a community resource.

We will trace major events that led to construction of the San Francisco Labor Temple in 1915, some of the history it has created since then, and hopes for its future role as a catalyst for change. Speakers, music, poetry and discussion.
