Strike! (print)

It’s 1919. Brisbane, Seattle, Barcelona. Workers demand their share of the post-war pie but big business and big government say “no” to crippling general strikes. But in Winnipeg, an entire city shuts down for six weeks and becomes the nation’s battleground for the democratic dream.

Mike Sokolowski and his godson Stefan have escaped Europe only to become “enemy aliens” in Canada. But where Stefan finds social justice in the strike, Mike sees a threat to his slave-wage job—his only hope of saving his family from revolution in Ukraine. When Stefan falls in love with Rebecca, a pro-strike Jewish suffragette, making a deportation target of them all, Mike turns against the strikers and their growing hope of changing the world.
