ILWU Local 10
400 North Point/Mason St.

Join the ILWU Local 10 Anti-War committee when it looks at the growing costs of the war in Iraq and the war against working people in the US. Also guests will include Japan rail union Doro-Chiba chair Mr. Masahiro Kawasaki. Mr. Kawasaki will speak about the labor struggles in Japan against the Iraq war and militarization. He will also show a video of the 1 day rail strike action against the war taken by his union. His union is fighting for justice for the fired workers of the privatized Japan Rail. These workers were victimized during privatization by the government and the company for being in a militant and democratic union.

There will also be reports from Jack Heyman and Clarence Thomas of the ILWU Local 10 Anti-War Committee, a video on the attack on April 7, 2002 against the anti-war protesters and Local 10 Longshoremen in Oakland the the ever increasing attacks on our democratic rights.

We invite all ILWU members of all locals and other trade unionists and sympathizers to attend this important meeting.
