The Bahri-Yanbu ship had been loaded with weapons in Antwerp, Belgium earlier this month, but was successfully blocked from picking up additional arms at the French port of Le Havre following a similar protest.

The Independent reports: Unions in the northern Italian city initially lobbied to have the vessel banned, but their efforts failed and the Bahri-Yanbu docked there earlier this week.

I suppose that is why the US is avidly getting rid of unions!! In the name of permanent wars.

WOW that is absolutely brilliant, BRAVO to them!!!

Of course it's why our nations governments hate & destroy unions Wilde, ours in Australia aren't as strong as they used to be, with half the amount of members they used to attract!

i saw an ad recently, i think it was US, it said something like -
"for the cost of union fee membership, one could buy a Nintendo"!!!
And thus, they continue to dumb down the people, how else can they do exactly what they want!!
