On May 1, the
international workers’ holiday, working people across the country are
rallying in solidarity with the International Longshore and Warehouse
Union (ILWU), the West Coast dockworkers’ union. It is taking the

In solidarity with

councils in the U.S. and Europe have organized support. The Peace
and Justice Committee of the PSC is sponsoring anti-war events and
tabling on 11 CUNY campuses.
