This week's Global Research News Hour commemorates the centenary of the 1919 Winnipeg General Strike, by exploring the overall impact of that event on successive generations of labour and social activists. Our first guest, Leo Panitch speaks to the context and historic significance of the 1919 Strike. In the second half hour, a round table speaks to the legacy of the strike and its meaning for today's solidarity actions and struggles. Professor Panitch is Canada Research Chair in Comparative Political Economy at York University, Emeritus Professor of Political Science at York University, and co-editor with Sam Gindin of The Socialist Register. Julie Guard is Professor of Labour Studies and History at the University of Manitoba. John Clarke is a long time organizer with the Toronto-based Ontario Coalition Against Poverty. Harold Dyck a long time anti-poverty and welfare advocate based in Winnipeg.
