Longshore workers striking in 1934 took a break on July 4th, 1934 for Independence Day before returning to picket lines. On July 5th, San Francisco police opened fire on striking workers, killing two and injuring 109 in what has since come to be known as Bloody Thursday. The deaths and subsequent turnout of 40,000 for the funeral procession turned public opinion in favor of the workers.
