‐2‐ "We hope that the Floyd family can find some comfort in knowing that tens of thousands of waterfront ILA labor and USMX management representatives will collectively engage in this peaceful one‐hour protest to express our solidarity, support and love," said the ILA and USMX. "We know our ILA longshore labor force and employers grieve, as does the entire nation trying to recover from the horror of Mr. Floyd's senseless death last week at the hands of four Minneapolis police officers and for all victims of similar crimes." Each port area will design its own activities for the Peaceful Protest Hour. "We may sit on opposite sides of the negotiating table, but the ILA and USMX will be strongly united for this historic moment to honor the life of Mr. George Floyd, and all victims of racist violence and to pledge to be the leaders that bring change for the good for all people, so that George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Walter Scott and so many others will not have died in vain," concluded the two organization leaders. # The United States Maritime Alliance, Ltd.
