Teamsters Local 814 Solidarity

For the fourth action, we joined a chorus of voices including artists, labor unions, and allies and re-occupied Sotheby’s joining the lock-out Teamsters on their picket line for the Fall Contemporary Art sale. We gathered and rallied in Liberty Park, occupied the subways, and joined the crowds at Sotheby’s. We stood in solidarity with the Unions, demanding that profits should not be made off of the backs of working people. We stood strong as brave friends engaged in a direct action “lock-down,” that included U-locking their necks to one another in protest of the locked out workers. These direct actions gave us energy and determination as we watched the police violently arrest and drag protesters away.
