On March 25th each year there is a memorial at the corner of Greene St. and Washington Place. The enormous march up 5th Avenue in 1911 was a springboard for the ultimately successful movement toward workplace safety. On March 26th this year there will be a historic march in Washington, DC to end another workplace scourge: rapid-fire violence. The parallels between the two tragedies of Triangle Shirtwaist and Stoneham Douglas are emerging. Each event was preceded by a blockade against reform led by entrenched interests. I believe that there will be an unraveling of this blockade in 2018 just as there was back in 1911. Another person named Marx once quipped that history may not repeat itself, but it often rhymes. – Kenneth Marx MD, Washington Square West New York, NY - 2018-03-10
