Leaflet asking people to attend a rally at the Waterfront at noon on April 28. Over the past year and a half, Philadelphia longshoremen have delayed or refused 10 ships carrying goods from South African and Rhodesia. The boycott by Philadelphia longshoremen is an act of solidarity with the struggle of South African workers; bosses who use racism to divide workers are not only in South Africa, they are on the backs of U.S. workers every day. Monopolies like GM, GE, Gulf, IT&T and Rohm and Haas are responsible for unemployment, low wages, unsafe working conditions, and pollution in the U.S. At each boycott, the longshoremen have had the support of about 35 Coalition members who join a picket line at 7:00 A.M. when longshoremen start working. • Philadelphia Workers, Unite behind the Longshoremen! • A People United Can Never Be Defeated
