Description: This film documents the coal miners' strike against the Brookside Mine of the Eastover Mining Company in Harlan County, Kentucky in June, 1973. Eastovers refusal to sign a contract (when the miners joined with the United Mine Workers of America) led to the strike, which lasted more than a year and included violent battles between gun-toting company thugs/scabs and the picketing miners and their supportive women-folk. Director Barbara Kopple puts the strike into perspective by giving us some background on the historical plight of the miners and some history of the UMWA.

"28.1. Kaivosduunarien lakkoilusta kertova dokumentti osoittaa, miten tarpeellisia ammattiliitot ovat. Meilläkin kaikki työehtoihin liittyvä paska yritetään saada aina liittojen syyksi, kun ovat niin kaavoihinsa kangistuneita, ettei paikallista sopimistakaan anneta tehdä, mutta Harlan County U.S.A. osoittaa, että ilman liittoja meininki olisi edelleen sitä, että linjastoesimies hakkaa pampulla tai kiväärinperällä niitä, jotka eivät käsittele hiiltä tarpeeksi nopeaan tahtiin.
