Front page of Local 574’s newspaper The Organizer, announcing the beginning of the Teamsters’ Trucker Strike in Minneapolis on July 16th, 1934.

The Gods of fate do so decree
That man must fight to win.
That classes rise and classes fall
Amid the battles’ din
That nowhere else
And nowhow else
Can workers sound their hour,
Except by standing toe to toe
And fighting strongly with the foe
Will win their way to power
