The story of the West Virginia aluminum workers is one of intimately personal experiences of capital's encroachments. Their story also reflects the trends within the domestic, organized working-class in the US over the last 60 years.

Where does the socialist movement 'fit' in that story? What was our role then, what is it today?

Obvious - we sit on the Internet, twiddling our thumbs and engaging in pointless e-drama.

Honestly this is a great piece. I have no experience or knowledge of the aluminium industry, or that part of America really (as evidence by the way I spell 'aluminium') but this was really compelling to read about.
