"It's Insane!" ILWU Longshore Workers/Truckers Challenge Oakland A's Billionaire Owner
by Labor Video Project
ILWU longshore workers, Truckers and companies at the port of Oakland had a press conference to oppose the owner of the A's John Fisher from building a new stadium and 4,000 condos costing more than $1 million each on the Howard Terminal in the port of Oakland. Speakers talked about the gentrification and ethnic cleansing of East Oakland and now West Oakland where an African American community has lived for decades.
This speculative financial scheme is fully supported by Oakland mayor Libby Schaaf who has ignored the ILWU and even the capitalists who profit from the port in her support for Fisher's A's stadium
