ILWU Local 10 president Trent Willis looks at the backlog of shipping on the West Coast and reports that the backlog of ships has ended at the Port of Oakland. He asks why the the 4th largest port in the US ocean carriers are refusing to use the port to unload container ships with 60 and 70 ships backing up in the ports of LA.

He also discusses the growing working class anger with a growing strike wave building up throughout the US and the growing dangers of a fascist movement in the US.

This interview was done on 10/14/21.
