  Origins of the Transport Workers Solidarity Committee
 
In April 2003, at the start of the Iraq War, anti-war protesters organized demonstrations in the port of Oakland to stop the shipment of war materiel. They chanted “The war is for profit. Workers can stop it.” Without warning, Oakland police attacked the demonstrators and longshoremen who work in the port injuring scores. The UN Human Rights Commission criticized the U.S. government for its violent repression of protesters.
