SF Bay Area friends & comrades, The call from Jack Heyman reproduced below is self-explanatory. But those who want to know more about the struggle of the Liverpool dockers (longshoremen, in U.S. parlance) should visit the excellent LobourNet web site: http://www.labournet.org.uk The left side of the home page is full of links to documents from and about the Liverpool struggle.

- In solidarity, - Aaron

Emergency Demo in Support of Liverpool Dockers

Dear Friend: The Liverpool dockers will have been on strike for two years this weekend. We intend to honor their courageous struggle with a mass picket/demo on the Oakland docks this Sunday 5:00 PM at the gate on Maritime and Pier Sts. (next to the Sealand Terminal). Our hope is that this action will bolster them as much as they have inspired us. When on Sept. 9, ports in South Africa were shutdown as part of an international day of action in solidarity with the Liverpool dockers, a dockers' union leader said "the Liverpool dockers supported us during the apartheid era, now they need help and we have the chance to repay them." This is a last minute appeal ..... but it is urgent. Please let us know if we can count on you and your organization. Bring your own signs. May we suggest a couple slogans: "Victory to the Liverpool dockers", "Never Cross A Picket Line", "Don't Handle Scab Cargo"

"Fight Global Shippers With International Labor Solidarity".

AN INJURY TO ONE IS AN INJURY TO ALL

In solidarity, Jack Heyman Victory to the Liverpool Dockers Committee 415-641-4440,4610 or 510-531-4717 9/26/97
