Storyboard Text

  • “Eight hours for work, eight hours for rest, eight hours for what we will!”
  • Revenge against the policemen!
  • One of the major causes the laborers fought for was to limit the work day to eight hours.
  • They also protested against police violence, as police had harmed and killed workers previously on May 3rd at McCormick Reaper Works.
  • Later on in the rally, the policemen showed up to end the protest, however an unknown man dropped a bomb, which caused chaos between the strikers and police. Police then used their fire arms against the radicals.
