Canada’s largest example of class conflict, the Winnipeg General Strike, redefined national and international discourse around class, politics, ethnicity, and gender. For a Better World brings together discussions detailing the dynamic history of the Strike, revealing our radical past and helping us to think imaginatively about collective action in the future.
