[olympiaworkers] Worker history and zines about organizing class struggle

hey, I just read the Centralia Conspiracy, by Ralph Chaplin. It a worker
account of the 1919 Centralia Massacre where American Legion members and
the chamber of commerce attempted to raid the IWW union hall. Chaplin sets
the context for the event by going into detail about conditions in the
lumber industry at the time and the history of anti-union activity in
Centralia. The Centralia IWW had their union hall raided and destroyed in
1918 following a strike.
