After the Civil War, the availability of natural resources, new inventions, and a receptive market combined to fuel an industrial boom. The demand for labor grew, and in the late 19th and early 20th centuries many children were drawn into the labor force. Factory wages were so low that children often had to work to help support their families. The number of children under the age of 15 who worked in industrial jobs for wages climbed from 1.5 million in 1890 to 2 million in 1910. Businesses liked to hire children because they worked in unskilled jobs for lower wages than adults, and their small hands made them more adept at handling small parts and tools. Children were seen as part of the family economy. Immigrants and rural migrants often sent their children to work, or worked alongside them. However, child laborers barely experienced their youth. Going to school to prepare for a better future was an opportunity these underage workers rarely enjoyed. As children worked in industrial settings, they began to develop serious health problems. Many child laborers were underweight. Some suffered from stunted growth and curvature of the spine. They developed diseases related to their work environment, such as tuberculosis and bronchitis for those who worked in coal mines or cotton mills. They faced high accident rates due to physical and mental fatigue caused by hard work and long hours. Lewis Hine (September 26, 1874 – November 3, 1940) was an American sociologist and photographer. Hine used his camera as a tool for social reform. His photographs were instrumental in changing the child labor laws in the United States. In 1908, he became the photographer for the National Child Labor Committee (NCLC), leaving his teaching position. Over the next decade, Hine documented child labor, with focus on labor in the Carolina Piedmont, in American industry to aid the NCLC’s lobbying efforts to end the practice. By 1916, Congress passed the Keating-Owens Act that established the following child labor standards: a minimum age of 14 for workers in manufacturing and 16 for workers in mining; a maximum workday of 8 hours; prohibition of night work for workers under age 16; and a documentary proof of age. By 1920 the number of child laborers was cut to nearly half of what it had been in 1910. “There is work that profits children, and there is work that brings profit only to employers. The object of employing children is not to train them, but to get high profits from their work”. – Lewis Hine, 1908. *********************************************************************** -Music: Air Prelude by: Kevin MacLeod -Music Download Link: https://incompetech.com/music/royalty-free/index.html?isrc=USUAN1100337

Lewis Hine is most famous for his photographs of the construction workers who helped build the Empire State Building in 1930. But in the years before he celebrated the heroic labour of these men working high above Manhattan, Hine used his photographs to campaign for social reform. In 1908 the then-sociology professor was hired by the National Child Labor Committee to document how children as young as seven were working in cotton mills and coal mines. Over a decade he took thousands of photographs that helped convince US lawmakers to introduce new industrial regulations to protect children.

Elegant Machinery - Do You Know -By the early 1900s many Americans were calling child labour "child slavery" and were demanding an end to it. They argued that long hours of work deprived children of the opportunity of an education to prepare themselves for a better future. Instead, child labour condemned them to a future of illiteracy, poverty, and continuing misery. In 1904 a group of progressive reformers founded the National Child Labor Committee, an organization whose goal was the abolition of child labor. The organization received a charter from Congress in 1907. It hired teams of investigators to gather evidence of children working in harsh conditions and then organized exhibitions with photographs and statistics to dramatize the plight of these children. Lewis Hine, a New York City schoolteacher and photographer, believed that a picture could tell a powerful story. He felt so strongly about the abuse of children as workers that he quit his teaching job and became an investigative photographer for the National Child Labor Committee. Hine traveled around the country photographing the working conditions of children in all types of industries. He photographed children in coal mines, in meatpacking houses, in textile mills, and in canneries. He took pictures of children working in the streets as shoe shiners, newsboys, and hawkers. In many instances he tricked his way into factories to take the pictures that factory managers did not want the public to see. Lewis Hine died in poverty, neglected by all but a few. His reputation continued to grow, however, and now he is recognized as a master American photographer. His photographs remind us what it was like to be a child and to labor like an adult at a time when labor was harsher than it is now. Hine's images of working children stirred America's conscience and helped changed the nation's labour laws.

Julia Wolfe's Anthracite Fields, an oratorio for chorus and instruments, has been awarded the 2015 Pulitzer Prize in Music. Wolfe drew on oral histories, interviews, speeches, geographic descriptions, children’s rhymes, and coal advertisements to create a work that gives an intimate look at a particular slice of American life. Cited by the Pulitzer committee as "a powerful oratorio for chorus and sextet evoking Pennsylvania coal-mining life around the turn of the 20th Century," the work premiered at the Mendelssohn Club of Philadelphia last April followed by a performance at the NY PHIL BIENNIAL in May. It was met with rave reviews. The New York Times wrote, “In Ms. Wolfe’s polished and stylistically assured cantata, the overall coherence of the musical material helped her expressions of outrage to burn cleanly and brightly.” The Philadelphia Inquirer praised the piece for creating “an alternate universe.” Anthracite Fields will be released on Cantaloupe Music this September, in a recording that features the Bang on a Can All-Stars and The Choir of Trinity Wall Street with Julian Wachner conducting. The next performance will be in March 2016 with the Los Angeles Master Chorale. "My aim with Anthracite Fields is to honor the people who persevered and endured in the Pennsylvania Anthracite coal region during a time when the industry fueled the nation, and to reveal a bit about who we are as American workers." Named after the technical term for the purest form of coal, anthracite, Anthracite Fields was written after Wolfe did extensive research about the coal mining industry in an area very near where she grew up in Pennsylvania. She writes, "In some ways the piece is a return to my small town Pennsylvania roots. In looking north – the left turn onto route 309, the road-rarely-taken – I delved into a local history.” Anthracite Fields is written in five movements: Foundation: The singers chant the names of miners that appeared on a Pennsylvania Mining Accident index 1869-1916. At the center of Foundation is text from geological descriptions of coal formation. Breaker Boys: In the center of this movement are the words of Anthony (Shorty) Slick, who worked as a breaker boy. The interview is taken from the documentary film America and Lewis Hine, directed by Nina Rosenblum. Hine worked for the National Child Labor Committee and served as chief photographer for the WPA. Speech: The text is adapted from an excerpt of a speech by John L. Lewis, who served as president of the United Mine Workers of America. Flowers: Flowers was inspired by an interview with Barbara Powell, daughter and granddaughter of miners. In one interview Barbara said, “We all had gardens,” and then she began to list the names of flowers. Appliances: Even today coal is fueling the nation, powering electricity. The closing words of Anthracite Fields are taken from an advertising campaign for the coal-powered railroad. In 1900 Ernest Elmo Calkins created a fictitious character, a New York socialite named Phoebe Snow, who rode the rails to Buffalo. It used to be a dirty business to ride a train. But with the diamond of coal her “gown stayed white from morn till night, on the road to Anthracite.” Anthracite Fields was commissioned through Meet the Composer’s Commissioning Music/USA program, which is made possible by generous support from the Mary Flagler Cary Charitable Trust, New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, and the Helen F. Whitaker Fund. Additional support was made possible through the Mendelssohn Club of Philadelphia Alan Harler New Ventures Fund; The Presser Foundation; The Pew Center for Arts and Heritage; the National Endowment for the Arts; The Musical Fund Society of Philadelphia, and the Aaron Copland Fund for Music.

Sarah Garland Gunning (later Sarah Ogan Gunning) was the tenth of 11 children in a Kentucky mining family, at a time when miners were paid less than a dollar and a half for a ten-hour day and worked in appalling conditions. Her father, Jim Garland, was blacklisted as he represented the miners in their fight for better wages, forcing him to use aliases in order go work in the mines. In 1931, a group of Northerners called the Dreiser Committee came to Kentucky to investigate atrocities committed against the miners, and brought their plight to national attention. Sarah Garland and her sister, Molly (later known as Aunt Molly Jackson) wrote and sang songs in support of the struggle at labor rallies. They were taken to New York by members of the Dreiser Committee to help raise money for the miners' cause. Sarah, who was suffering from brown lung disease met folk singers like Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger and Lee Hays, who went on to record her songs. After successful treatment for tuberculosis treatment she retired from performing, but returned in the '60s to perform at several major folk festivals. Her half brother, Jim Garland, wrote "I Don't Want Your Millions, Mister", which I have already uploaded to YouTube. This song, written in 1937, is typical of her work. It has been recorded by Uncle Tupelo, who sings it from the perspective of a coal miner, rather than a coal miner's wife as in the original version, and also by Mike Seeger.

하시마섬 유네스코 세계유산 등재 2년... 그 후? Hashima island. One of dozens of controversial sites Japan has pushed to gain UNESCO World Heritage recognition. A proud symbol of Japan's rapid industrialization. Contrary to the image Tokyo is promoting it's where hundreds of Koreans were taken and forced into labor in deadly undersea coal mines. Oh Jung-hee met with the few survivors to hear their stories. A 15-second-long video has been lighting up New York's Times Square since Monday. It aims to shed light on a less well-known aspect of Hashima Island -- one of Japan's UNESCO World Heritage sites. "It's a fact that the island is listed as a world heritage site. So our ad starts with this fact, and then delves deeper into forced conscription and the 120 victims. It ends by saying that Hashima's true name is 'island of hell.'" Roughly 15 kilometers away from the city of Nagasaki in southwestern Japan... lies the uninhabited island of Hashima. Surrounded by a sea wall, and full of abandoned concrete buildings,... the island resembles a battleship, which is why it's commonly called Gunkanjima or "Battleship Island." The island is recognized as a symbol of Japan's rapid industrialization,... but has a dark history of conscription and forced labor. From 1940 to 1945, five hundred to eight hundred Koreans were forcibly taken to Hashima Island. Kim Hyung-seob is one of them. The exact date that he was taken to Japan -- November 17th, 1943 -- is one he can never forget. "I don't even want to talk about it. I can't explain how much we suffered. Eating was the biggest problem. They gave us dried sweet potato, beans and bean dregs. That's what they called 'food' for us." Korean laborers were neither well-fed nor well-paid.. And they had to spend more than 12 hours a day in the coal mine,... which is 1-thousand meters under the sea. Lee In-un is another survivor. He says... some laborers desperately tried to escape from 'hell'... but failed. "The land was visible from the island. It was right across the sea. Some tried to escape by swimming and holding onto wooden panels. But they died." "The dreary atmosphere of Hashima island can be seen through these photos here. And what's clearly noticeable is the difference in living environments between Japanese citizens and Korean laborers. The Japanese citizens living in modern, newly built apartments. In contrast, five hundred to eight hundred Korean laborers were crammed into these small buildings." Hashima Island was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2015,... as one of the places symbolizing Japan's Meiji Industrial Revolution. When Japan got the endorsement of the UNESCO advisory committee ICOMOS, Korea strongly protested against it,... claiming that having these places as world heritage sites hurts the victims' and UNESCO's dignity. At the 2015 UNESCO official meeting, Japan, for the first time on the international stage,... acknowledged there was forced labor. "There were a large number of Koreans and others who were brought against their will and forced to work under harsh conditions in the 1940s at some of the sites." But that was immediately reversed by the Japanese foreign minister Fumio Kishida. "The expression 'forced to work' does not mean 'forced labor.'" ICOMOS recommended that Japan take measures to help visitors understand the 'full history' of the sites... and Japan promised to establish information and commemoration centers. While an implementation report on that is due December 1st this year,... not much action has been taken within Japan. "According to what we're hearing from civil groups in Japan,... signboards installed at the facilities don't explain at all about conscription and forced labor. Rather, the authorities are interviewing the Japanese people who lived on the island back then... who say Hashima was not an 'island of hell' like what Koreans say." The Korean government is to raise the issue at the annual UNESCO World Heritage Committee meeting... currently taking place in Poland. The government expressed regret that no tangible measures have been taken in Japan over the last two years... and highlighted Japan's promise is not only an agreement with Korea, but with the whole world. Having an agreed view on history and remembering it is crucial in heading toward the future. For Korea, the first step would be recognizing Hashima Island and others as legacies of Japan's industrialization... and for Japan, to face the fact that colonization contributed to its industrialization.

Through her example as a labor and civil rights leader, and her challenge to norms that restrict women’s role in society, Dolores Huerta became an early symbol of female power for the Chicano and feminist movements.
Ted Strickland turned his back on Ohio when he went to work for an anti-coal, anti-gun, pro-tax liberal special interest group. First, Ted Strickland bragged about all the money he made in his "Dream Job," then he recounted how he's been running for Congress for 40 years, and now he touts his need for a paycheck. With articulate lines like this, it's no wonder Ted Strickland has repeatedly been called "invisible" and "stealth" for hiding from the media and the public.

The Ludlow Massacre was an attack by the Colorado National Guard and Colorado Fuel & Iron Company camp guards on a tent colony of 1,200 striking coal miners and their families at Ludlow, Colorado, on April 20, 1914. About two dozen people, including miners' wives and children, were killed. The chief owner of the mine, John D. Rockefeller, Jr., was widely criticized for the incident. The massacre, the culmination of an extensive strike against Colorado coal mines, resulted in the violent deaths of between 19 and 26 people; reported death tolls vary but include two women and eleven children, asphyxiated and burned to death under a single tent. The deaths occurred after a daylong fight between militia and camp guards against striking workers. Ludlow was the deadliest single incident in the southern Colorado Coal Strike, which lasted from September 1913 through December 1914. The strike was organized by the United Mine Workers of America against coal mining companies in Colorado. The three largest companies involved were the Rockefeller family-owned Colorado Fuel & Iron Company, the Rocky Mountain Fuel Company, and the Victor-American Fuel Company. In retaliation for Ludlow, the miners armed themselves and attacked dozens of mines over the next ten days, destroying property and engaging in several skirmishes with the Colorado National Guard along a 40-mile front from Trinidad to Walsenburg. The entire strike would cost between 69 and 199 lives. Thomas G. Andrews described it as the "deadliest strike in the history of the United States". The Ludlow Massacre was a watershed moment in American labor relations. Historian Howard Zinn described the Ludlow Massacre as "the culminating act of perhaps the most violent struggle between corporate power and laboring men in American history". Congress responded to public outcry by directing the House Committee on Mines and Mining to investigate the incident. Its report, published in 1915, was influential in promoting child labor laws and an eight-hour work day. The Ludlow site, 18 miles northwest of Trinidad, Colorado, is now a ghost town. The massacre site is owned by the United Mine Workers of America, which erected a granite monument in memory of the miners and their families who died that day. The Ludlow Tent Colony Site was designated a National Historic Landmark on January 16, 2009, and dedicated on June 28, 2009. Modern archeological investigation largely supports the strikers' reports of the event. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ludlow_Massacre Please support this channel and help me upload more videos.

This week Just Asia begins with Pakistan, which observed World Day Against Child Labor on June 12. Despite official fanfare and praise, child labour continues to increase in the country, and child rights groups have criticized the government for not criminalizing it. Civil society is urging the government to formulate policies and laws to eliminate child labour and take cohesive and concrete steps to ending poverty, both of which are closely interconnected. In India, a 26-year-old law student was tortured by police in Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh. M Stalin was picked up by the police on suspicion of being part of a red sander smuggling network on June 4, and detained for 18 hours. Stalin pleaded with the officers to check up on his identity, but was ignored and tortured. Stalin is demanding action against the three constables who tortured him. Nepal’s Chief Justice Sushila Karki retired on June 7. Before leaving her office, the first woman Chief Justice revealed how Nepal’s judiciary, especially the Supreme Court, has long been bogged down in partisan politics and factionalism. She also exposed how judges often compromised their impartiality by seeking post-retirement appointments. Moving to Papua, Indonesia, the past one year has seen no improvement in the province’s human rights situation, particularly regarding freedom of expression and opinion. Most recently, members of the National Committee for West Papua (KNPB) and the Local People Assembly (PRD) were arbitrarily arrested and detained for organizing a peaceful assembly and prayer gathering in Wamena and Merauke on May 30-31. To learn more about the Papuan situation, Just Asia speaks to Mr. Theo Hesegem, Human Rights Defender from Wamena, Papua. Free speech is under assault in Bangladesh. The government is using Section 57 of the Information and Communication Technology Act to harass anyone raising their voice against government policies and actions online.

In 1933, President Franklin D. Roosevelt selected Frances Perkins as Secretary of Labor and first woman Cabinet member. She brought to the Labor Department long experience in occupational safety and health with the State of New York. To help assure that workplaces would be "as safe as science and law can make them," Perkins created a Bureau of Labor Standards in 1934 as a rallying point for those interested in job safety and health. This was the first permanent Federal agency established primarily to promote safety and health for the entire work force. The Bureau helped State governments improve their administration of job safety and health laws and raise the level of their protective legislation. Congress enacted three laws as part of Roosevelt's New Deal which augmented the Federal Government's role in protecting people on the job. The Social Security Act of 1935 allowed the U.S. Public Health Service to fund industrial health programs run by State health departments. This made the Public Health Service, which had begun doing industrial health studies in 1914, the national leader in this field. The Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, which set a minimum wage and banned exploitative child labor, gave the Labor Department the power to bar workers under age 18 from dangerous occupations. The Walsh-Healey Public Contracts Act of 1936 allowed the department to ban contract work done under hazardous conditions. Industrial hygiene is one of the most important topics in preventive medicine and hygiene, as it deals with the health, the welfare and the human rights of the vast majority of the adult population. Industrial hygiene is a subject in which the medical, economic and sociologic aspects are closely interwoven, and it requires a broad grasp, as well as an intimate knowledge of the conditions to avoid the dangers and correct the injustices to which people who work are subjected. Our tremendous base of knowledge and the availability of effective scientific methods for the investigation and conquest of occupational and environmental health hazards should give us cause for optimism in achieving the objectives of the Occupational Safety & Health Act and the Environmental Protection Act. Political will is the issue. Thus, "the history of occupational diseases is infinitely more than medical history . . . hazards and diseases changed with developing industries and whether any use was made of medical knowledge did not depend so much on the physicians as on the social organization under which the laborer performed his work . . . The history of occupational disease, therefore, reflects as in a mirror the history of industry and the history of labor, in other words some of the most important chapters in the history of human civilization" (Sigerist, 1943).

In the American tradition, commercial banking claimed public support in exchange for delivering public services. It has become increasingly clear that those services are both failing the poor and distributing resources, including access, authority, profits, and credit, along lines of race.

Ralph Hosea Chaplin (1887–1961) was an American writer, artist and labor activist. At the age of seven, he saw a worker shot dead during the Pullman Strike in Chicago, Illinois. He had moved with his family from Ames, Kansas to Chicago in 1893. During a time in Mexico he was influenced by hearing of the execution squads established by Porfirio Díaz, and became a supporter of Emiliano Zapata. On his return, he began work in various union positions, most of which were poorly paid. Some of Chaplin's early artwork was done for the International Socialist Review and other Charles H. Kerr publications. Chaplin's IWW membership booklet For two years Chaplin worked in the strike committee with Mother Jones for the bloody Kanawha County, West Virginia strike of coal miners in 1912-13. These influences led him to write a number of labor oriented poems, one of which became the words for the oft-sung union anthem, "Solidarity Forever". Chaplin then became active in the Industrial Workers of the World (the IWW, or "Wobblies") and became editor of its eastern U.S. publication Solidarity. In 1917 Chaplin and some 100 other Wobblies were rounded up, convicted, and jailed under the Espionage Act of 1917 for conspiring to hinder the draft and encourage desertion. He wrote Bars And Shadows: The Prison Poems while serving four years of a 20-year sentence. The black cat of the Industrial Workers of the World, also adopted as a symbol by anarcho-syndicalists Although he continued to work for labor rights after his release from prison, Chaplin was very disillusioned by the aftermath of the Russian Revolution and the evolution of the Soviet state and international communism, particularly its involvement in American politics and unions in 1920-1948, as he details in his autobiography, Wobbly. However, he was also not pleased by the course of New Deal liberalism. Chaplin maintained his involvement with the IWW, serving in Chicago as editor of its newspaper, the Industrial Worker, from 1932 to 1936. He became active in the cause of preventing Communist infiltration in American unions. Eventually Chaplin settled in Tacoma, Washington, where he edited the local labor publication. From 1949 until his death he was curator of manuscripts for the Washington State Historical Society. He is credited with designing the now widely used anarcho-syndicalist image, the black cat. As its stance indicates, the cat is meant to suggest wildcat strikes and radical unionism. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

http://ThoriumRemix.com/ Thorium is an abundant material which can be transformed into massive quantities of energy. To do so efficiently requires a very different nuclear reactor than the kind we use today- Not one that uses solid fuel rods, but a reactor in which the fuel is kept in a liquid state. Not one that uses pressurized water as a coolant, but a reactor that uses chemically stable molten salts. Such a reactor is called a "Molten Salt Reactor". Many different configurations are possible. Some of these configurations can harness Thorium very efficiently. This video explores the attributes of Molten Salt Reactors. Why are they compelling? And why do many people (including myself) see them as the only economical way of fully harnessing ALL our nuclear fuels... including Thorium. This video has been under development since 2012. I hope it conveys to you why I personally find Molten Salt Reactors so compelling, as do the many volunteers and supporters who helped create it. Much of the footage was shot by volunteers.

In India, there are about 3 million workers formally employed in the formal economy with potential exposure to silica dust. Further, approximately 8.5 million more work in construction and some more exposed to silica dust in such a sectors called as unorganised/ informal economy which are not yet defined by the government based on specific policy that could differentiate formal/organised and informal/unorganised sectors. Thousands of these workers develop silicosis every year and die directly from it, or from secondary causes such as TB or lung cancer. However, relatively few of these deaths are recorded as being caused by silicosis or as being work-related in national statistics According to International Labor Organization's (ILO) Prevention of Occupational Diseases report that said 2.02 million--of the 2.34 million--died "from wide range of work-related diseases. 6,300 work-related death happen everyday and 5,500 are brought by work-related diseases while around 160 million cases of non-fatal work-related diseases occur annually. In India, the ILO said, about "10 million workers employed in mining, construction and various industries are exposed to silica dusts" and "some studies show that silicosis prevalence rates are 54.6 percent among slate pencil workers and 35.2 percent among stonecutters, while the coal-worker's pneumoconiosis (CWP) prevalence rate is 18.8 percent." The ILO/WHO Joint Committee on Occupational Health launched in 1995 a Global Programme on the Elimination of Silicosis from the world by 2030. The objective of this Task Force is to further develop and implement this programme, to encourage every country to develop its own national silicosis elimination programme, and to provide a knowledge base for countries that wish to launch a national programme. Prevention of pneumoconiosis other than silicosis may be included as a part of the programmes at the regional and country levels, because occupational exposures to different kinds of dusts are widespread and the prevention and control activities for different forms of pneumoconiosis are to some extent related. But in India there is no such Occupational Disease Detection Centres/Units in majority of government and ESI hospitals. IMF chief Christine Lagarde today said pollution from coal generation plants causes about 70,000 premature deaths every year in India. Indian coal power plants kill 120,000 people a year, says Greenpeace Jharkhand is a mineral bearing State in India. History of mining and processing of metallic and non-metallic minerals in Jharkhand is more than 200 years old. More than 16000 dust generating units that include coal, copper, iron, uranium, bauxite, quartz, granite, and several thousand related industries and construction sites are currently operational. Nearly 55-60 Ramming Mass (Quartz Grinding) units, more than 15,000 stone crushers, 192 iron ore crushers, 40 sponge iron units which are in operation without any regulatory mechanism are identified as most hazardous units of Jharkhand. Two Ramming Mass units of Musaboni Block have claimed lives of 38 workers within 5-to 10 years, 16 cases are found confirmed silicosis who are alive and remaining 136 silica dust affected workers who have been suffering from lung ailment who need medical surveillances treatments and life care supports for increasing the expectancies of their lives. Considering the above facts and the older information available in different sources in public domain the conservative estimate is around 25-30 lakh workers are exposed to silicosis and other occupational lung diseases in Jharkhand. The children and women of this affected workers are worst victims because early cessation from their job and premature death put them in vulnerable situation that need to be addressed implementing legal provisions of social security for the affected workers and their family members.

At Christmas time in 1907, a rogue dynamiter known by the nom de boom George O'Donnell sat in a rented room overlooking the East River and studied the construction of the new bridge to Long Island City. After four years of labor, the $20 million span that became the Queensboro Bridge was nearly finished. And the scoundrel O'Donnell aimed to bring it down. It was a $2,500 hit for a patron known for erections, not demolitions: the International Association of Bridge and Structural Ironworkers. The Queensboro job was to be a big bang in a largely forgotten terror campaign a century ago by union ironworkers against the open shop movement. ‘Monster’ brutally raped and killed women for over a decade From 1905 to 1911, 86 structures — many of them bridges, buildings and viaducts built with non-union labor — were damaged in a plot by an inner ring snidely dubbed the "entertainment committee" at the ironworkers international headquarters in Indianapolis. Blasts thundered in more than a dozen cities hitting, among others, a courthouse in Omaha, the Grand Opera House in Boston, and structures in Cleveland, New Orleans, Salt Lake City and New Jersey. Kansas City saw five explosions in three years. Union membership was booming, increasing to nearly 2 million from 1897 to 1904. This nettled Big Business. Crooked NYC bookie drove LaGuardia crazy during 30-year career In 1903, David McLean Parry of the National Association of Manufacturers declared that unions followed "the law of the savages." American Industries, a trade magazine, griped that unions regarded capitalists with "bitter hostility." It said, "The constant opposition of the labor union leaders to rational plans. . . has proven a continual source of amazement and chagrin to all fair-minded employers of union labor." As many as 50 trades had a role in building colossal structures like the Queensboro. Powerful forces in the construction world — U.S. Steel, the American Bridge Co. and the National Erectors' Association — were determined to keep such jobs open to non-unionists. This put them at odds with ironworkers. Ex-teacher gunned down 8 in Fla. in 1982, offered hint of future These cowboys of the skies were a different breed, plying a trade that the U.S. Bureau of Labor described at the time as "one of the most, if not the most, hazardous industrial operation." The ironworker on-the-job mortality rate was more than double that of coal miners. "They work far up on dizzying structures," a federal commission noted in 1914. "They creep to and fro on narrow iron beams so far up in the air that the people down below look like little ants . . . They must become accustomed to going up high and not falling off." Just one in four of the 50,000 American ironworkers were unionized in 1905, when the international ordered a strike, seeking official recognition from Big Business. The dynamiting of open shop jobsites commenced within weeks. Killer axman spares jazz lovers in New Orleans sl

Was on Tour With The Band Hobo Monk..and as we were driving We ran into Ludlow ..Said a Prayer and this film Makers ask to interview me..then i found out later that it was to become a historic landmark the next day. Funny How The Universe works sometimes........... The Ludlow Massacre was an attack by the Colorado National Guard and Colorado Fuel & Iron Company camp guards on a tent colony of 1,200 striking coal miners and their families at Ludlow, Colorado on April 20, 1914. The massacre resulted in the violent deaths of between 19 and 25 people; sources vary but all sources include two women and eleven children, asphyxiated and burned to death under a single tent. The deaths occurred after a daylong fight between militia and camp guards against striking workers. Ludlow was the deadliest single incident in the southern Colorado Coal Strike, lasting from September 1913 through December 1914. The strike was organized by the United Mine Workers of America (UMWA) against coal mining companies in Colorado. The three largest companies involved were the Rockefeller family-owned Colorado Fuel & Iron Company (CF&I), the Rocky Mountain Fuel Company (RMF), and the Victor-American Fuel Company (VAF). In retaliation for Ludlow, the miners armed themselves and attacked dozens of mines over the next ten days, destroying property and engaging in several skirmishes with the Colorado National Guard along a 40-mile front from Trinidad to Walsenburg. The entire strike would cost between 69 and 199 lives. Thomas Franklin Andrews described it as the "deadliest strike in the history of the United States". The Ludlow Massacre was a watershed moment in American labor relations. Historian Howard Zinn described the Ludlow Massacre as "the culminating act of perhaps the most violent struggle between corporate power and laboring men in American history". Congress responded to public outcry by directing the House Committee on Mines and Mining to investigate the incident. Its report, published in 1915, was influential in promoting child labor laws and an eight-hour work day. The Ludlow site, 12 miles (19 km) northwest of Trinidad, Colorado, is now a ghost town. The massacre site is owned by the UMWA, which erected a granite monument in memory of the miners and their families who died that day. The Ludlow Tent Colony Site was designated a National Historic Landmark on January 16, 2009, and dedicated on June 28, 2009. Modern archeological investigation largely supports the strikers' reports of the event.[

Following months of negotiations， Korea and Japan have reached an agreement on Tokyo′s bid to list some of its wartime industrial facilities as UNESCO world heritage sites. While Tokyo does have some obligations to meet，... there are concerns over Japan′s sincerity regarding the issue. Hwang Sung－hee tells us more. The World Heritage Committee listed Tokyo′s wartime industrial facilities as UNESCO sites at its 39th session in Bonn， Germany， on Sunday. The listing which follows months of negotiations between Korea and Japan comes with a set of preconditions. ″Japan is prepared to take measures that allow an understanding that there were a large number of Koreans and others who were brought against their will and forced to work under harsh conditions in the 1940s at some of the sites.″ Japan′s 23 industrial sites include seven coal mines and shipyards where nearly 60－thousand Koreans were forced into labor in the 1940s， during its colonial rule of Korea. Tokyo had initially marked them as being operational from 1850 to 1910. Japan also vowed to ensure the victims are remembered by establishing information centers at each site. Korean Foreign Minister Yun Byung－se welcomed the outcome， as it marks the first time that Tokyo has publicly acknowledged such cases of forced labor. ″We are pleased that Japan′s wartime industrial facilities were listed as World Heritage sites in the form that takes account of our legitimate concerns.″ But tensions remain with Japan giving an ambiguous translation of its statement for its domestic audience. ″The expression ′forced to work′ does not mean forced labor.″ An official at Seoul′s foreign ministry dismissed concerns， saying the English version of the statement has been officially adopted by the World Heritage Committee. He added that Japan must also follow up by submitting a progress report by the end of 2017， which will be reviewed by the World Heritage Committee the following year. If Japan′s progress is deemed unsatisfactory， the sites could be removed from the UNESCO list. Hwang Sung－hee， Arirang News.

They didn't know there was going to be a second one, though they probably should have guessed, 'cause this one didn't wrap up very neatly. So, the United States stayed out of World War I at first, because Americans were in an isolationist mood in the early 20th century. That didn't last though, as the affronts piled up and drew the US into the war. Spoiler alert: the Lusitania was sunk two years before we joined the war, so that wasn't the sole cause for our jumping in.

Rev. William J. Barber, II, gave a rousing and profound keynote about the work to build a broad-based grassroots movement that can be strong and sustainable enough to confront systemic racism, poverty, environmental devastation, the war economy, and the distorted moral narrative of religious nationalism in America today. -- William J. Barber, II is a pastor and social justice advocate building a broad-based grassroots movement, grounded in the moral tenets of faith-based communities and the constitution. As pastor of Greenleaf Christian Church in Goldsboro, North Carolina (since 1993) and president of the North Carolina conference of the NAACP (2005–2017), Barber approaches social justice through the lens of the ethical and moral treatment of people as laid out in the Christian Bible, the Reconstruction and civil rights movements of the South, and the United States Constitution. He is effective at building unusually inclusive fusion coalitions that are multiracial and interfaith, reaching across race, gender, age, and class lines, and dedicated to addressing poverty, inequality, and systemic racism. When his work to expand voting rights, health care, living wages, immigrant rights, public education and LGBTQ rights was thwarted by extremist state lawmakers in North Carolina, Barber began a series of "Moral Monday" rallies outside of the statehouse in Raleigh to protest laws that suppressed voter turnout, cut funding for public education and healthcare, and further disenfranchised poor white, black, First Nations, and LGBTQ communities. The Moral Mondays rallies and associated nonviolent acts of civil disobedience grew to involve tens of thousands of participants across North Carolina and spread to states across the South. The movement waged successful legal challenges to voter suppression and racial gerrymandering, winning twice at the Supreme Court. Barber founded Repairers of the Breach, a leadership development organization, in 2014 to expand and build a national movement rooted in moral analysis, moral articulation, and moral action. In 2016 he led a moral revival tour that covered 26 states and attracted thousands. In 2017, he and colleagues launched a revival of the 1968 Poor People’s Campaign that was spearheaded by Dr Martin Lither King, Jr and many others. Beginning with an audit of systemic racism, poverty, ecological devastation, and the war economy in the United States since 1968, the campaign has been recast for the twenty-first century, building state and local, non-partisan fusing movements committed to shifting the moral narrative, building power, and challenging laws and policies that hurt the poor and threaten our democracy. William Barber received a B.A. (1985) from North Carolina Central University, an M.Div. (1989) from Duke University, and a D.Min. (2003) from Drew University. He has also received seven Honorary Doctorates. From 2006 to 2017, Barber was president of the North Carolina chapter of the NAACP and has been a member of the national board of the NAACP since 2005. He is a contributing op-ed writer for The New York Times, CNN, MSNBC and the Washington Post. Barber is also a 2018 MacArthur Fellow, 2018 Tar Heel of the Year, an Auburn Seminary Senior Fellow and holds the Visiting Social Justice Chair at St. John’s University.

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLwGzY25TNHPDWyg0REfU7gHqUk40elC1_ All Episodes of "Forgotten Leaders" The project provisionally titled “Forgotten Leaders” is a series of seven films, each featuring an individual from the leaders of the Soviet state in power during the time period from 1920 to 1953. Each episode is a filmed portrait depicting the story of life, political and public activities of its hero. The heroes of “The Forgotten Leaders” are individuals ambiguous from the perspective of the Russian and world’s history and odious and often sharply negative in the eyes of public consciousness. Unfortunately, when labeling, we often forget that “each individual is a tangle of contradictions” and that “history is written by the victors”. Seven men. Seven lives. One era. What was behind their decisions and at what was the price they paid for their deeds?

Coal pollution is the single biggest driver of climate change on the planet. Sign the petition today :http://www.oxfam.org.uk/coal Let’s tell David Cameron to phase out coal. It's causing more and more extreme weather and pushing the world's poorest people into poverty and hunger. If we keep burning fossil fuels at the rate we are now, climate change could push 50 million people into hunger by 2050. It's not too late to stop climate change, find out more on "What does coal have to do with hunger?" http://po.st/YJxPU9

The first thing you notice about Sarnia, Ontario, is the smell: a potent mix of gasoline, melting asphalt, and the occasional trace of rotten egg. Shortly after my arrival I already felt unpleasantly high and dizzy, like I wasn't getting enough air. Maybe this had something to do with the bouquet of smokestacks in the southern part of town that, all day every day, belch fumes and orange flares like something out of a Blade Runner-esque dystopia. Sarnia is home to more than 60 refineries and chemical plants that produce gasoline, synthetic rubbers, and other materials that the world's industries require to create the commercial products we know and love. The city's most prominent and profitable attraction is an area about the size of 100 city blocks known as the Chemical Valley, where 40 percent of Canada's chemical industry can be found packed together like a noxious megalopolis. According to a 2011 report by the World Health Organization, Sarnia's air is the most polluted air in Canada. There are more toxic air pollutants billowing out of smokestacks here than in all of the provinces of New Brunswick or Manitoba.
