PHOTOS: Seattle Education Association on Strike

Yesterday marked the first day of strike action in thirty years by the Seattle Education Association. PLG co-ordinating committee member Elaine Harger, a school librarian in Seattle, has shared these pictures from yesterday's picket lines.

"My contribution to the line was copies of the lyrics to Solidarity Forever and recruiting our choir teacher to lead us in song, which he happily, joyfully, loudly, and beautifully did.  The sense of unity was powerful!"                                                                       - Elaine Harger
