Autonomy Films and Bridport UNITE Community Group present “JOE HILL – HE NEVER DIED!”

Joe HillToday, 19th November 2015,  is the 100th anniversary of the death of Joe Hill.  He was an activist and union organizer whose songs have inspired the labour movement worldwide.  A thorn in the side of exploitative bosses and the US state, he was executed in Utah on 19th November 1915 on a trumped-up murder charge.  Come to celebrate the life of this extraordinary man, watch a short documentary film, mark his unjust death, and enjoy his songs – join in if you want!  Hear Paul Robeson sing about him.
