A victory in the Port! War profiteer SSA was shut down this morning by our community picket line. Picketing will continue this afternoon. Join the picket line!
SATURDAY, MAY 19: Longshoremen honored a community picket line this morning at the SSA Terminal in the Port of Oakland. Three ships are now sitting at the SSA docks, and cargo is NOT moving today. Our picket line will resume this evening to meet the next shift of dock workers.
