Title

UFE member Claire Johnson sits for Log interview

Description

Giving her account of the UFE strike to the Seafarers Log, Johnson said, "I am a member of the UFE and was supposed to join the line in front of the Stock Exchange where there were three other girls picketing. As I went to the line, a cop stood in front of me and wouldn't let me by. I moved to one side and so did he. Then he moved to the other side when I did. I tried to get around the cop but he bumped me. This went on several times and finally I was thrown against a pillar, and hit it hard. Then another cop got into the argument. He said, "Take her away." So they took me away, and I was at the station house when the cops slugged the pickets."
