The International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) has announced that it will shut down
West Coast ports today
, to protest the war in Iraq.
Oddly, the ILWU website's top page
has no mention of the action. Following a link to their newspaper The Dispatcher
, however, we find a page 2 article on the planned action, only available as a PDF
Supporting the action are the San Francisco Labor Council
and Vermont AFL-CIO
And while you may not agree with everything the Internationalist Group
has to say, you may find some of the photo documentation of past demonstrations on this page
to be of some interest.
