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
