The San Francisco Bay Area has a rich history of radical movements and individuals starting in the 1800's and continuing to the present. Movements such as the Wobblies (Industrial Workers of the World), other forms of anarchism, socialism, communism, marxism, civil rights, feminism and enviromentalism flourished in this region. Individual radical figures who played a role include Jack London, John Muir, Tom Mooney, Emma Goldman, Alexander Berkman, Harry Bridges, and many more. Join this Meetup to study and discuss these radical movements, leaders and key events, such as the 1934 San Francisco Maritime and General Strike and the 1988 "Rat Monday" Strike. We will organize lectures, classes, book discussions, film viewings and study groups to understand, compare and uncover the radical history of the nations' most radical city. All points of view are welcome in respectful conversation.
