The portworkers will be back on the streets on 9/17 to protest an appearance in SF by chief union-buster Elaine Chao. Oakland: Youth speakers and performers led a rally against the military state.

At the San Franciso rally, police arrested 2 protestors, Jackie Santos and Zulma Oliveras, from the Comite '98, after an incident involving a counter-demonstrator carrying a sign saying "Bomb Bagdad (sic)." Zulma is being held on an outrageous bail of $40,000 on the equally outrageous charge of 2nd degree robbery. Witnesses to the incident are requested to contact the Int'l. ANSWER Coalition office.
