Feminist brigade to support the ILWU 21
- All feminist men are welcome to participate. There will be a women's for feminist brigade planning meeting this Friday to stand with and support the Women's Auxilary of local 21 and the Women with ILWU who are facing legal battles. This is a great action to recognize women in labor battles. This is to be part of the community rally caravan to arrive in Longview when a scab ship is due in late January or the beginning of February. This is part of west coast call out to save jobs.
I'd appreciate knowing who can come to this to help with slogans, signs, chants, songs, outreach including calling, and organizing transportation. Thanks!
Stop Union Busting!
Build a Feminist Brigade to support ILWU Longshore workers and members of the Women's Auxiliary
in Longview at a work party on Friday, January 20th, 7:00 pm
Lend a hand to organize a feminist brigade as part of a mass solidarity caravan to Longview to stand
shoulder to shoulder with the Women's Auxiliary of local 21 and ILWU women. They face legal
attacks for their direct action, with their ILWU brothers, against union busting EGT, an international
conglomerate grain distributor.
This is part of a call-out from thousands of community members and union activists to confront union-busting, and rally against EGT when they try to load a grain ship with scab labor. The ship is expected to arrive in Longview at the end of January or beginning of February.
