Oakland Martime workers from ILWU Local 10, SUP and MMP rallied at Oakland City hall to protest the plans to sale the Howard Terminal in the Port of Oakland to GAP & A's billionaire owner John Fisher.

Maritime workers said that the privatization of the Port would destroy it for the development project of Fisher for 3,000 condos and a hotel.
Fisher also runs the KIPP and Rocketship charter ship schools and A's manager Dave Kaval is on the board of Rocketship charter chain.
The rally was held on 7/20/21 before the vote by the Oakland City Council which supported a deal 8 to 1.

This rally was initiated by the United Front Committee For A Labor Party
