Together we get this all sorted out so well.

The above address, 1 Market st, Oakland, is barely a mile from 12 St. BART in downtown Oakland. From BART, walk down Brodaway to Jack London Square and turn right on Embarcadero. From their it is about six blocks to the foot of Market and Berth 68.

Leave this ship alone - there are more important targets. The Italia Line ships have nothing to do with the Italian Government or state. Italia Line was privatised under the Centre Left Prodi government - it was sold to a private company, d'Amico Navigazione that has no links with the Italian state. D'Amico has been serving the use West Coast for 40 years. D'Amico treats its crews well and has good relations with the Italian Labour organisations.

Dock Closed! Join Oakland Picket NOW!

If we can keep the dock closed until 3:00 AM - or so - the ship will be forced to leave!
The dock-workers are on stand-by - which means – if we can keep a good sized picket going they won’t cross the line and the ship won’t get unloaded.
Some friendly ILWU workers (getting paid while on stand-by) informed us that if we can hold the line until the end of the shift (Early tomorrow morning) the ship won’t get unloaded at all – someone doesn’t want to pay the ILWU workers time and a half for the ship to get unloaded Saturday.
So we already have a small victory.

If we can hold the line until early tomorrow morning it will be a MAJOR VICTORY!
When I left to post this – around 10:15 PM there were still around 30 people. We need to keep up the numbers.

See you there.

Howard Terminal, Berth 68 in Oakland is at the foot of Market Street at
3rd - about a half mile north of Jack London Square.

By BART - exit at 12th Street in Oakland. Either walk down Broadway
then right (north) on 3rd to Market, then turn left to Embarcadero, or
