Triangle: The Fire that Changed America



On March 25, 1911, 147 victims of the Triangle Shirt Waist tragedy, the largest part of them young girls, either crashed to death in panic stricken leaps from ledges 100 feet above the ground or, were trapped within the building, having no way of opening the doors that had been locked to prevent theft.

Peter Taafe makes here about the need for industrial action and politically fighting with the Government and Councils - well this is obviously correct.
