by Labor Video Project
The major billion dollar development project of the GAP A's billionaire owner John Fisher is being pushed by local, state and national politicians. East Bay Congresswoman Barbara Lee and Biden's US Secretary of Transportation "Pete" Buttigieg are refusing to take a stand on this and instead are allowing Fisher to get hundreds of millions of tax dollars for this billionaire's development scheme which according to maritime unions would destroy the Port of Oakland as a working port.
