The Hilo Massacre on Aug. 1, 1938 marked a turning point in Hawaii’s labor movement, however, few of the state’s 1.4 million residents even know it took place. Dr. William Puette of the University of Hawaii – West Oahu, who chronicled the event in his 1988 book, The Hilo Massacre: Hawaii’s Bloody Monday, said the event helped sway public opinion to the plight of organized labor. "When that shooting took place, a lot of people felt this should never have happened," said Puette, who leads the University’s Center for Labor Education and Research. "I think the union became much more sympathetic in the eyes of the general public and the community as a result of this."

Although no one died in the massacre, at least 50 protesters were shot by police and national guardsmen as they marched to Hilo Harbor in a show of solidarity with striking ILWU dock workers in Honolulu.
