The date, time, and place has been set to honor the life of our Friend and Fellow Worker, Richard Myers:
For Richard: A Commemoration in Music and TheaterThe above is an email from IWW-Denver through the Bread and Roses Workers Cultural Center. I am very much hoping that Daily Kos will be represented at the Celebration. Richard Myers will long be remembered here at Daily Kos for his steadfast activism on behalf of Labor, Women's Issues and, mostly recently with the StopRush movement.

Richard Myers, Labor Historian:
Richard was one of the contributors to
Slaughter in Serene
Eric Margolis, Joanna Sampson, Phil Goodstein and Richard Myers present a compelling history of the 1927 coal strike led by the Industrial Workers of the World. This was the first strike in which Colorado miners were not defeated utterly. This was the last strike in which a state militia played their dubious role. Sadly, it was just one of a number of strikes in which miners and their families confronted violence perpetrated by the power of the state.
