SMASH THE SLAVE LABOR INJUNCTION! (tags)
Bush is going to court seeking an injunction ordering the West Coast longshoremen back to work, invoking the slave labor Taft-Hartley Act. This law was written by ultra-right Republican Robert Taft, passed as part of the post-WW2 reaction, and is THE main union-busting tool of the capitalist state. The last time a President tried to invoke was Jimmy Carter in 1978, and he failed. Let's make sure Bush fails this time, too. For a general political strike to smash the slave labor injunction and stop the war with Iraq!
