Jerry Brown Attacks Labor Leader
On April 7, 2003 the Oakland Police Dept. opened fire on a peaceful anti-war picket line in the Port of Oakland protesting the war profiteers shipping military cargo. The demo was called by Direct Action to Stop the War. Dozens of demonstrators and 9 longshore workers, members of ILWU Local 10, were seriously injured and 25 were also arrested including Jack Heyman, Local 10 business agent. Heyman was dragged from his car, roughed up and then arrested for the "crime" of trying to warn his members of the violent police attack.

Over 100 people turned out at the Alameda County Courthouse Nov. 7th to defend the right to demonstrate at the port of Oakland and to demand that the charges against the Oakland 25 be dropped.
