Labor Movie Night: Salt of the Earth
February 22 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The labor working group of Silicon Valley DSA is hosting a labor movie night at the San Jose Peace and Justice Center. We are watching the 1954 film “Salt of the Earth.” Snacks will be provided at the event; feel free to bring your own snacks to share as well! This is a dry (non-alcoholic) event.
Movie plot summary: Mexican workers at a Zinc mine call a general strike. It is only through the solidarity of the workers, and importantly the indomitable resolve of their wives, mothers and daughters, that they eventually triumph. Run time: 1 h 34 min
