Operations at the Port of came to a halt on Friday, as thousands of dockworkers and supporters marched through the streets of to protest against police brutality and racial injustice as part of Juneteenth celebrations.

The strike was called by ’s longshoremen, as cranes and machinery remained silent for eight hours in 29 ports on the West coast.

Protesters were seen with signs reading “End systemic racism” and “Stop police terror.”

“There is many thousands out here, this is very important, it is part of what is going on nationally including especially in Tulsa, where Trump, on Juneteenth, a celebration of the end of slavery, calls for what is really a white supremacist clan rally and what can you say,” said Barry Thornton, a member of political organisation ‘Refuse Fascism.’

“We want to defund the police, we don’t need police, there are community organisations that could benefit from the millions of dollars that we put into the police in America and many black communities are struggling because they are not enough money funded toward them,” said Mary, another protester.

This year’s Juneteenth takes place in the wake of nationwide protests and racial tensions over racism and police brutality following the recent killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and other black Americans.

On June 19, 1865, Union army general Gordon Granger proclaimed in Galveston, Texas that all enslaved African-Americans in the state were free, belatedly enforcing President Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation.
