Union leaders from around the world, including David Cockroft of the International Transport Workers Federation, Michael Sacco, president of the Seafarers International Union and Rene Lioeanjie, president of the National Maritime Union and the head of maritime unions in Australia, Norway and Great Britain are expected to address the rally. Members of the ITF Seafarers Section, local labor leaders, elected officials and community members from the Gulf States region will join OMU at this rally.
