Abstract:

The Seattle general strike of 1919 was a remarkable moment within a larger historical network of creative political resistance. The workers who made the strike, particularly the "two-card" men whose dual union membership combined the fight to improve existing conditions with the larger struggle for a better world, serve as conceptual personae for helping us explore the contemporary relevance of the events. The Seattle general strike rose out of the immanent historical practices of Seattle's labor communities as they interrupted state and capitalist formations and instead organized to govern themselves.
