‘We are one’ campaign

May 21, 2011

Oakland, Calif.–Dozens of labor groups rallied at Frank Ogawa Plaza on April 4th as part of the nationwide We Are One campaign in support of public sector employees in Wisconsin, Ohio and Indiana. It was the 43rd anniversary of Martin Luther King’s assassination. King had gone to Memphis, Tenn., to join Black sanitation workers’ struggle for collective bargaining rights. The hundreds here went on to a larger march in San Francisco while dockworkers kept the Port of Oakland shut down all day.
