Video: Pete Seeger on Harry Bridges & 1934 SF General Strike

Pete Seeger speaks about the 1934 San Francisco General Strike and Harry Bridges. He and Woody Guthrie went to the bay area in 1941 and composed the "Ballad For Harry Bridges" to support the fight against the deportation of Australian born Harry Bridges. They sang to the ILWU strike committee. This video was done in honor of the 75th anniversary of the San Francisco general strike of '34 for the commemoration events and LaborFest.
