NorthStar Anarchist Collective proudly presents: AMERICAN DREAM
the award-winning Barbara Koppel documentary on the Hormel Meatpackers
strike in Austin, MN --- Tuesday, August 16, 2005 --- MAPPS Cafe 7:30pm
Cedar & Riverside --- 1810 Riverside --- (across from the Hard Times Cafe)
To help mark the 20th anniversary of the historic P-9 meatpackers strike
against the Hormel Co. in Austin, Minnesota , NorthStar Anarchist Collective
presents the award-winning Barbara Koppel documentary "American Dream."
The strike by UFCW Local P-9 pitted a small town union and its fired up
rank & file against the combined power of the most profitable Meatpacking
corporation (Hormel Co.) , a sell-out union International (the UFCW), and
the Minnesota National Guard (called out by a "pro-labor" DFL governor).

The strike divided a town and inspired rebel workers across the country.
At a time when Northwest Airlines is demanding more and more concessions
from its workers and the AFL-CIO splits in two, it is more than worth it
to re-examine the lessons of the P-9 struggle at Hormel.

Former Chair of the Twin Cities P-9 Metro support committee and Prof. of
History at Macalaster College Peter Rachleff will lead a post film
