Paper Tiger TV (producer) Drawing the Line at Pittston documents the 1989 coalminers' strike against the Pittston Mine Company in Virginia, West Virginia and eastern Kentucky. This strike proved to be a dramatic symbol for unions everywhere as supporters from around the world rallied behind the United Mine Workers. Although, this immense demonstration was one of the biggest US labor strikes in the last fifty years, it gained little to no coverage in the mainstream media. Through a series of interviews with strike workers, their families and local religious and community leaders, Paper Tiger attempts to illuminate the gradual political awakening of a working-class community that was nearly swallowed up by the machinations of corporate greed.
