Respectfully, I have no wish to get into an ideological debate here. That's not my intent or interest.
I guess folks were being critical of the IWW for something they may not agree. OK, fair play. As a non-participant, I was trying to get a handle as to why a tactic or opportunity chosen or taken in this instance.But the history is there to simply say, this has been done before. Even at the height of industrial strength and application of mass engagement, appearing before legislative bodies have happened. Well, surely here in the US. Perhaps not in the UK, and my bad for not understanding UK labour history.
