      There are many goons.  Some are chameleons.

      May those killed rest in peace & be remembered by their descendants.

      +Memory Eternal for all those who were killed.

      Sadly, the modern day "goons" are the ones runing the unions.

      On March 9, 1912, the Westmoreland County (Pa.) Coal Strike known in history as the "Slovak strike" because some 70 percent of the 15,000 strikers were Slovakian immigrants began and continued for nearly 16 months before ending in defeat for the Slovak-American workers. Sixteen miners and family members were killed during the strike by company goons.

      As Mother Jones said, "Pray for the dead; Fight like hell for the living."
