There's a strike at Chicago meat-packing houses against a 10% wage reduction, and rioting of supposedly 100,000 people. The "women folk" of the strikers place themselves between the strikers and the mounted police. They use pepper against the cops and their horses, and children scatter tacks ahead of the motorcycle cops. Cops shoot into the crowd, as was the custom. A black scab is thrown into the grossly named sewage stream Bubbly Creek and paving blocks are thrown at him until he drowns.

Eighty years after Pearl Harbor, survivors of Japanese American internment camps remember ordeal

President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, authorising the incarceration of all persons of Japanese origin suspected of being traitors. In the end, nearly 120,000 were deported to "relocation centres". Entire families were locked up behind barbed wire for up to three years.
