Hi Scott. Nice work. The only thing I would suggest is that it might be useful to explain very briefly why the 1919 strike is so important to labour and working-class history. It was more than a general strike of six weeks in one city. It inspired sympathy strikes in cities across Canada and  was part of a much wider movement of strikes that included the US and Great Britain, all of them inspired by the possibilities embodied in the Russian Revolution.

Subject: [1919-Conference] article for Rank and File



This is the write up for Rank and File.ca. I will also attach some of our graphics to use for the article. It should go up early next week.

Please let me know if this is good to go. I wanted to make it fairly short and to the point.
