The event seems more than a rah-rah; rather, with setbacks for the labor movement in Wisconsin, Ohio and Michigan, local labor leaders are trying to marshal forces.
Labor remains one of the central players in local Range politics, stronger here than in other parts of the state (and a frequent item of discussion in the comments section). Efforts to weaken public sector and other unions in Minnesota would have a huge political impact in the storied and historically significant Iron Range region. Many here seek to stop such a thing from happening, even to reverse the trend if possible.
On a personal note, it was nice to see these posters. My use of fist clip art back in college got me in trouble from time to time. This might even be the same clip art. Nostalgia, man. Powerful stuff.
