No Peace, No Work, ILWU Shuts Down West Coast Ports To Protest War
(20 min) 2008 by Labor Video Project
The ILWU has a long tradition of independent labor action and solidarity and this past May was no exception. For the first time since the 1940’s, workers went out on May Day, which is the traditional day for workers around the world. They also took this action to protest the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. This educational meeting will examine how and why this took place. It will also screen the video No Peace, No Work, ILWU Shuts Down West Coast Ports To Protest War. Following the presentations and video there will be discussion.
Organized and presented by the ILWU Local 10 Education Committee
