Way to go, people. This is the kind of action the U.S. working class needs to be engaging in. Demonstrations, in themselves, are only a part of the story. The reformist Left, however, wants to make purely symbolic demos the WHOLE story; and so you people putting yourselves out where it matters is showing how one-sided and ineffectual that plan is.

I salute you in your efforts, however modest they have to remain for now; and I hope that this project is taken up all over the ports -- air and marine -- of the U.S. and Canada. We have to block this regime from its daily business of exporting murder and mayhem.
