Two weeks before the American presidential election, there was a labor rally in Washington, DC, the ill-named Million Workers March (MWM). With the possible exception of the organizers, members of Local 10 of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU), few would call the event an unqualified success. The turnout was smaller than hoped for, there were organizational problems (detailed below), and the crowd was dominated by the already politicized. That is, it was really not the massive “workers” march that was billed and hoped for.
