George Floyd is a name that won’t soon be forgotten.

His death—with a cop’s knee on his neck as he lay restrained on a Minneapolis pavement and declared “I can’t breathe”—outraged the nation and sparked an uprising. Thousands of demonstrators across the U.S., in Hawaii, and worldwide took to the streets to protest racism, police brutality, income inequality, socio-economic disparities—and to proclaim that “Black Lives Matter.”  

The ILWU stands in solidarity with all who fight for racial, social, economic and political justice—including the protesters calling for changes in police policies and practices and an end to racism.
