Subject: happy? - Mar 27 (1912 BC strike)
From: Abby Sale
Date: 27 Mar 06 - 07:50 AM

On 3/27/1912

some 4,200 railroad construction workers in British Columbia struck.
The IWW organized it and provided some songs.
One song was:

        Where the Fraser River flows
        Each fellow worker knows
        They have bullied and oppressed us
        But still our union grows
        And we're going to find a way, boys
        For shorter hours and better pay, boys
        We're going to win the day, boys
        Where the Fraser River flows.

                "Where The Fraser River Flows," by Joe Hill.
                See The Songs of Joe Hill, Barrie Stavis & Frank Harmon

Early warning notice: This series of the Happy File noncontinues beginning April 16.
