Great news! All of the charges against the Oakland 25 anti-war protesters (including Local 10 Business Agent Jack Heyman) were dropped today in court. The bogus charges stemmed from police arrests after a peaceful protest against the Iraq war profiteers, APL and SSA, in the port on April 7, 2003. This is a complete victory for the defendants! However, the bloody war and repression continue. ILWU Local 10 is the lead plaintiff in a suit in Federal Court against the Oakland Police Department for its brutal attack against anti-war protesters and longshore workers.

Thanks to all who have supported our struggle with solidarity faxes, donations and participation in defense rallies over the last year.

In solidarity,
Jack Heyman
