All proceeds from this event will go to support
the two-year struggle of the nearly 500 dockworkers
in Liverpool who have been permanently locked out
and replaced by scabs.  The Flickering Flame (1996)
outlines the background to the dispute and gives the
dockers the opportunity to explain in their own words
why they think the outcome of their struggle has
implications for workers everywhere.

The purpose of this benefit screening is not only
to raise money and awareness for the Liverpool
dockers, but also to gather activists interested in
making the upcoming Women of the Waterfront (WoW) Tour
a success.  The WoW is a support group consisting of
the wives and partners of the Liverpool dockers.
They will be doing a speaking tour of Canada on Nov.
20-30, stopping in Ottawa on Nov. 21.

WoW Tour you can contact:
