Free Tom Mooney mass meeting at Dreamland Pavillion
Free Tom Mooney Protest
Address: Dreamland Pavilion
On February 22, 1918 the Iron Molders’ Union paraded down the streets of Seattle to Dreamland Pavilion where 4,000 unionists were rallying to protest the imprisonment of Tom Mooney. Tom Mooney, an iron worker and socialist party leader, had been imprisoned in California for allegedly throwing a bomb during the 1916 Preparedness Day Parade in San Francisco. His imprisonment was widely contested by union members along the West Coast and the incident in Seattle at Dreamland Pavilion was one of many attempts by Seattle labor to show their support for his release.
