The Crew on the Beach & Strikes Hunger Bloodshed Death

San Francisco: American League Against Communism, n.d (ca. 1934). 2 mimeographed leaflets comprising three page, 8-1/2 x 11 in. Two-page items stapled in one corner. Together with printed application for membership in the league. Folded and with some edge wear, but still quite good. Item #206878

Two flyers aimed at members of the longshoremen's union in San Francisco, which mounted a major strike in 1934 that halted shipping along the west coast of the United States. The leaflets warn of dire consequences of Communist infiltration into the unions: "The Red anarchists in the United States want you to follow the Red leaders in your unions. Why? They want Red solidarity in the ranks of labor. Why? They never work for a peaceful solution of a problem. Why? They prolong every strike. Why? They want you to be broke -- they want you hungry -- they want you fighting made -- they want you fighting a bloody class civil war in the United States."

Price: $150.00
