About 6,000 community members and International Longshore and Warehouse Union workers made their way Thursdayfrom the Vincent Thomas Bridge to the Maritime Museum to support hundreds of Los Angeles and Long Beach dockworkers engaged in contentious contract talks with employers.

Led by Banning High School students, ILWU members, their spouses, friends, children, and, in some cases, even family dogs marched down Harbor Boulevard along the San Pedro waterfront and Port of Los Angeles during Thursday's sunset, carrying signs that read: “We support the ILWU and they support us.”
