Description

The Colorado Independent's editor Susan Greene hosted this panel discussion on the Ludlow Massacre and the Colorado Coalfield War on Thursday, April 10th, at 6:30 p.m., at the Open Media Foundation, 700 Kalamath Street, Denver, 80204. Panelists included: - Bob Butero, Region 4 director of the United Mine Workers Union and a third-generation Colorado miner. - Frank Petrucci, the son of a striker at Ludlow. Frank's three older siblings died in the site's "death pit." His mother, Mary Petrucci, escaped the fire and toured the nation with Mother Jones calling for labor reform. - Dave Mason, Colorado's poet laureate and professor at Colorado College. He is the author of a verse novel called "Ludlow," which is one of the best pieces of historical reporting we've seen on the topic. - And Wil Smith, an employment attorney in Boulder who will speak about where we as workers and Coloradans stand a century after the tragic massacre.
