A reading by writer and ILWU Local 10 retired Secretary Treasurer Herb Mills from his forthcoming book Presente! He connects the dots in his new novel which presents the routine, day-to-day work of a fictional Local 10 officer and the role which he and others played in the union's December 1980 refusal to load military cargo for the junta of El Salvador, in its effort to halt the execution of Kim Dae-jung, and in the events which led to the Puget Sound murder of two union brothers by paid assassins of Marcos. Mills himself was instrumental in building direct labor support for El Salvdoran workers and in helping to prevent the execution of Korean dissident Kim Dae-jung through his offices and the power of West Coast longshoremen. This work can play a key role for international labor solidarity and survival in this dog eat dog world.
