Public Dissent Against the War

Last week's New York Times/CBS News poll indicated that 81 percent believe the country is headed in the wrong direction - key concerns being the war and the economy.

Still the war machine inexorably grinds on.

Amid this political atmosphere, dockworkers of the International Long Shore and Warehouse Union have decided to stop work for eight hours in all U.S. West Coast ports on May 1, International Workers' Day, to call for an end to the war.

It appears that long shore workers may be calling on immigrant workers and others to join them.

Meanwhile, members of Iraq Veterans Against War (IVAW) seized the National Archives Building in Washington DC, and called for Dick Cheney and President Bush to be charged with war crimes. IVAW read aloud the terms of a Citizens Arrest Warrant.
