ILWU dock workers chose not to cross a large and boisterous early morning picket at three gates of Berth 58 at the Port of Oakland. Labor and community activists returned in the afternoon to blockade again and assure no cargo from the Israeli Zim Lines ship would be unloaded on June 20th, 2010. In this video, speakers celebrate the conclusion of the historic picket, the first time in the U.S. that a protest has stopped an Israeli ship from unloading.

Thank you for your actions and a precedent setting activism. Viva Palestinia!!! The inhumanity of the Zionist State is despicable: What they did to the turkish flotilla is unacceptable, what they did to cynthia mckinney is despicable. Apartheid state =Racism.
