Today, March 25, is the 108th anniversary of Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire that murdered 147 garment workers during a strike, mostly who were Jewish, Slavic and Italian immigrants from Prussia. The massacre was caused by the pigs Max Blanck and Isaac Harris, who locked the fire exit doors and set the building on fire to suppress the strike. The Triangle Fire was one of the very long list of struggle for the working class. Rest in power.
Fire in my mouth is an oratorio written by Julia Wolfe. Arguably it's the first-ever mainstream orchestra project that finally representing the working class. The classical scene is known for its extreme toxic reactionary with privileged cum bags, with exception like John Cage, but finally in times it opened to the proletariat.
