1938 in Vancouver looks like Occupy

It was 20 years before I was born yet it looks like the Occupy Movement! A 1938 picture in today’s Vancouver Sun showed that Vancouver police injured 39 men and arrested 22 for a sit-in strike at the Vancouver main post office. It lasted 6 weeks and the men simply wanted jobs or financial support because they were starving from the Great Depression. The best part of the news was that 10,000 middle class people showed up the next day for a solidarity sympathy meeting. May we never forget history. [Vancouver Sun, 19 June 12]
