Wow, good video online only 6 hours later? Excellent work! That's the kind of on-the-ball we need more of.

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.

BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP!
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.
PLEASE HELP HOLD THE LINE.

See you there.
