Viewing Notes

This was a short documentary included on the FEAR AND DESIRE disc. It was actually pretty interesting. I had no idea there was (and still is) a Seafarers International Union, which is a labor union for merchant seamen who work on ships under U.S. flag on the ocean, Gulf of Mexico, Great Lakes and waterways.
