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

Coal miners can sit down anywhere they want to, anytime. These miners in the Decatur War Zone on Oct. 15, 1994, decided to sit down in an intersection between the Firestone and Caterpillar plants. The trial began this week in the A.E. Staley workers' civil suit against the City of Decatur for 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 lock-out.
