HOT CARGO EDICT FOR IRAQI WAR CARGO

Saint John Longshoremen have declared a ?hot cargo? edict for
military cargo
destined for the Iraqi war. Unless the United Nations gives its
approval,
the port workers have voted to support that position and intend to
request
other Saint John workers and citizens to adopt the same stance.
