Massacre At Republic Steel
In the Memorial Day Massacre of May 30, 1937, police open fire on a peaceful demonstration at Republic Steel. Fleeing picketers step on bodies as shots are fired into the crowd. Cops attack protesters, then load them into police wagons. In another shot, workers and police look down at a casualty. Gripping and dramatic.
