More of Hawai'i Standing in Solidarity With West Coast Port Shutdown!
UPDATE: Occupy Maui, Occupy Honolulu, and Occupy Hilo are participating in direct action blockades of their ports tomorrow. The local ILWU leadership has agreed that union members will not cross picket lines, and rank-and-file are on board. This is an immense statement, as over 70% of Hawai'ian food and material resources are imported to the remote island-chain state, and underscores to the people's desire for a re-emergence of self-sustainable agriculture and goods production on the islands.
Occupy Hilo (Big Island of Hawaii) will be standing in solidarity with the West Coast Port Shutdown at Hilo Terminal from 12p-3p on Monday 12/12. Occupy Waimea and Occupy Kona will also be waving signs and standing in solidarity with the port shutdown on Monday.
This joins Occupy Maui's call for solidarity a few days ago!
