    having lost their sense of connection with unions during the anti vietnam war demonstrations when we saw peaceful though sometimes obnoxious kids getting beaten up by hardhat union goonspeople

    we realized later on that those workers had been co-opted, were inevitably identifying with the war machine which was in fact, feeding them and their families

    that was long ago though and i was pleased to engage with union people in demonstrations last spring, "what's disgusting? union busting"

    it's taken all this time but there's an increasing contingent of americans who've grown up to advocate solidarity of those who work for a living
