We shall not be moved -- Decatur War Zone, Oct, 15, 1994

Coal miners can sit down wherever they want to, anytime. These miners in the Decatur War Zone decided to sit in an intersection between the Caterpillar and Firestone plants on Oct. 15, 1994. The A.E. Staley workers' civil suit against the City of Decatur began this week, stemming from the pepper gassing of non-violent protestors at the Staley plant gate on June 25, 1994 -- the first anniversary of the company's vicious union-busting lockout.
