ILWU Port Shut Down
The International Longshoreman and Wherehouseman's Union (ILWU) will be shutting down ports throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, and up the coast in some ports in Oregon and Washington, with a stop work meeting on the morning of March 20. They are shutting down the ports on the anniversary of the invasion of Iraq and will be demanding an end to the war, an end to the occupation and the immediate withdrawal of all U.S. troops now! ILWU Local 10 will be boarding buses, after their meeting, to go to the San Francisco protest and lead the march. They urge all union members from throughout the area to attend the march and join them and thousands of other people on the streets of San Francisco on the anniversary of the start of the war in Iraq.
