Video: Portland Labor Defend Abortion Rights Rally

On Sunday, January 17, a group of 50 union activists in the Portland area picketed a "youth rally" held by Oregon Right to Life, an anti-abortion group that held a day of action nationally to "mourn" the anniversary of Roe v. Wade and attack women's right to abortion. With a banner calling on labor to defend abortion rights, Class Struggle Workers - Portland led a determined picket with members of at least seven local unions as well as solidarity and leftist groups. The picketers underlined the far-right and outright fascist politics of ORL leaders, while emphasizing that the Democratic and Republican capitalist parties have both severely restricted women's fundamental right to prevent unwanted pregnancies. The class-struggle rally called for free abortion on demand and for labor to use its power to defend the clinics.
