Organizer/AuthorAnti-War 4 Million Worker March
Haiitian activist Pierre Labossiere was in Haiti early this year for
the bicentennial celebrations marking the country’s independence from
France. LeiLani Dowell traveled to Haiti this month as part of a
fact-finding delegation led by former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey
Clark. She met with dozens of political prisoners, including Haitian
singer So-Anne and members of Jean Bertrand Aristide’s government who
were arrested after the coup against Aristide.

Local 10 of the International Longshore Warehouse Union is famous for
its long history of militancy, boldness and courage in defense of
working people. The ILWU is now organizing millions of people to go to
Washington, D.C. Oct. 17 to demand decent jobs with a living wage and
universal health care and money for housing, schools and education not
war. The Million Worker March is also demanding an end to the
occupation of Iraq and to bring the troops home now. In the words of
actor Danny Glover, “We must keep marching. . .before the elections and
after the elections. . .until we win justice for the homeless, the
unemployed and we bring the troops home now.”
