Today, May 1, 2008, on Bush's notorious 'MISSION ACCOMPLISHED DAY' approximately 10,000 longshoremen stayed away from work for a one-day protest against the debacle in Iraq. The walkout was observed at the ports of Los Angeles, Long Beach, Oakland, Seattle and other US west coast ports. The International Longshore and Warehouse Union reported that at these ports traffic had virtually come to a halt during the morning shift. Union officials stated that many of the big shipping companies are profiting off the war. Job well done! If more people got involved and protested we would have been out of Iraq years ago.
