ILWU “Bloody Thursday”1934 General Strike Commemoration At SSA Terminal Port Of Oakland
ONN – The ILWU, other unions, community activists and supporters commemorated the “Bloody Thursday” when 2 strike supporters were murdered by the San Francisco police in 1934. It led to the San Francisco general strike.
The commemoration also discussed the recent racist attacks on longshore workers at the SSA terminal in Oakland where this commemoration took place.
Speakers including Trent Willis, president of ILWU Local 10 also talked about the need to fight privatization of the Port of Oakland by billionaire John Fisher who owns the GAP and the A’s. He is pushing to privatize the Howard Terminal to build a stadium, 3,000 one million dollar condos and a hotel.
This would destroy thousands of maritime jobs according to the ILWU. Trent Willis also supported the formation of a labor party that would represent working people. The Democratic Party officials have voted to support Fisher’s stadium development including Ron Banta, Nancy Skinner, Oakland mayor Libby Schaaf and the Oakland City council which voted to open up negotiations to sell off the Coliseum to Fisher for his development plans.

Note from Zennie62Media and Oakland news Now: this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland news Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
