    Power to the Pictures - review by David Moberg, In These Times
    The Wobblies--nobody knows exactly how they got the nickname--were founded in a 'continental congress of the working class,' involving such leading lights of the American left as Big Bill Haywood, Eugene V. Debs, Mother Jones and socialist leader Daniel DeLeon. An alternative to the craft-oriented and often discriminatory AFL, the Wobblies argued for One Big Union of all workers, organized by industries, who would use direct action on the job to fight not only for better conditions but for direct control of the economy by workers themselves.
