Solidarity Has No Borders
Film screening of Solidarity Has No Borders - The Journey of the Neptune Jade
By Labor Video Project (26 min.) 2005 lvpsf [at] labornet.org
With Jack Heyman, one of the organizers of the solidarity action and others.
In 1997, in support of striking Liverpool dock workers, San Francisco longshore workers refused to handle cargo in the Neptune Jade ship. This was an act of solidarity with dockworkers in England who were fighting against privatization and the right to abide by a picket line. This forum will discuss why this action was taken.
