Demand Bush Stay Out Of Our Ports

No Militarization of the Port of Oakland Protest & Rally
Monday, August 12, 2002
5:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Oakland Federal Building
1301 Clay Street, Oakland, CA.

WE DEMAND that the Bush Administration stay out of the ongoing contract negotiations of the ILWU or any unions at the West Coast Ports in an attempt to threaten their workers' lawful rights

WE DEMAND that Bush and the Pacific Maritime Association stop using "Homeland Security" as an excuse to militarize or federalize our Ports in order to weaken the American Labor Movement

WE OPPOSE any attempt to militarize our Ports by bringing in the National Guard or US Navy troops to replace American dockworkers or any American workers

BY BART: Take BART to the Oakland City Center-12th Street Station. Take the Plaza Exit and walk west through the Plaza, then cross Clay Street to the Federal Building.

This summer - workers across Alameda County - are unifying their struggles to fight for new contracts and a Voice@Work - against employers attempting to eliminate good jobs that we need in our communities, take away healthcare & benefits from our families, attack workers' rights, and threaten public services & the health of our neighborhoods.
