Centralia IWW Monument Fund

Friends and Fellow Workers!
The IWW is purchasing and installing a monument in Centralia, Washington to commemorate and honor the Wobblies who died or were imprisoned following the 'Centralia Tragedy' of November 11, 1919. On that day, the IWW union hall was attacked for the second time by a mob of American Legion men acting on behalf of the city's business interests. Armed union members defended their hall. Since 1919 the Tragedy's history has been falsely told by the aggressors, who purchased their monument in Washington Park long ago. After years of effort, the Centralia City Council has agreed to the IWW monument design. It will be in the park next to the Legion's. All expenses are on the IWW. Thanks to individual contributors through this website and many other contributions from within IWW and other unions, we have purchased the 2x3' bronze plaque but still need to pay a contractor to mount the plaque and install it. The Whatcom-Skagit General Membership Branch of the IWW holds the funds on behalf of the Centralia Monument Committee. Any leftover funds will be set aside for additional monument projects. Even though we have reached our stated goal, please fell free to contribute to the current fund.
