IWW REBEL WORKER MOVIE NIGHT
SALT OF THE EARTH

Garden St. Methodist Church, 1326 N. Garden
“Salt of the Earth”  is one of the first movies to advance the feminist social and political point of view. Its plot centers on a long and difficult strike, based on the 1951 United Mine Workers strike against the Empire Zinc Company in Grant County, New Mexico. After police brutality and slick company strategy, the union men are ready to throw in the towel- but then the WOMEN take over and add backbone and new tactics. The producers and director cast miners and their families as actors in the film.
It is the only movie ever banned by the US Gov’t, at the behest of Senator McCarthy’s House Unamerican Activities Committee.
$3 at the door; $2 with any paid-up union card
Hope you can all make it! Bring all your friends!
