STRIKE Tour 2014

May 25th 2014,  The 1919 Strike Tour last year took 35 people through highlights of what happened in 1919, with an eye to the social and economic conditions that laid the foundation for the strike. The presentation reflected on how the echoes and shadows of the General Strike can be heard and seen in Winnipeg of 2014.

It was 95 years ago when the workers of Winnipeg, with their supporters in the police and soldiers returning from the war, stood up in mass solidarity and brought the city to a stop. Their courage and sense of justice launched dynamics that serve the people of Winnipeg today!

Abut 40 history buffs ended the tour at the boutique hotel that now occupies the site of the original Victoria Park.
