May Day in history and tomorrow in Portland
Norm Diamond hosts this Old Mole May Day Special program about working class struggles, then and now. This is the 100 year anniversary of the big textile workers’ strike in Lawrence, Massachusetts. We’ll report on the April 28 celebration in Lawrence and look ahead to May Day events here in Portland. The show features and comments on music from the Lawrence strike and from contemporary labor protests.
