Harlan County USA - A Documentary
This is a documentary about the mine strikes of Harlan County, Kentucky in 1973 where the laborers and miners of Harlan took on the mine owner, Duke Power, and his henchmen and formulated a strike with a move to form a union.
It isn't easy to find but it is sure an eye opener because every bit of it is real. This is a story of people REALLY FIGHTING for their jobs.
If you can find it, watch it - you will never forget it.
If you can't find it - and things keep going the way they are -
you don't have to worry, you'll just live it.
