Women's Day Massacre Youngstown 6-19-37

80 years ago today police massacred 16 people and injured nearly 300 when wives and kids supported striking  workers on the picket line on at The Stop 5 Gate of Republic Steel on Poland Ave. .  These were some bad ass men and women standing up for what they believed in.  This happened two blocks from where I grew up.  My great grandfather was there.  My mom was five at the time and was injured when a pot boiled over on their stove and a doctor from the picket line came to the house to treat her. The story below even mentions Powersdale Ave.
