B-roll "Solidaridad Sindical" mural by Pablo O'Higgins at ILWU Honolulu

B-roll "Solidaridad Sindical" mural by Pablo O'Higgins at ILWU Honolulu recorded for 1946: The Great Hawaiʻi Sugar Strike. Commissioned by ILWU Hawai'i, O'Higgins painted the three story mural in the ILWU Honolulu offices to "[celebrate] the ascendancy of sugar plantation unions to power. Painted in 1952 and still on view in the ILWU offices, this mural tells the story of oppression, struggle and victory of Hawaii's working people and serves as an inspiration to the ILWU members who improved working conditions through union representation. Both of these grand works promote union solidarity and empower the worker." https://www.terenchin.com/2019/06/20/pablo-ohiggins-1904-1983/
