On June 20, 2010, a labor and community picket line was put up at the SSA terminal at the port of
Oakland to protest the Israeli Zim Shenzhen ship. The picket was called to protest the Israeli blockade
of Gaza and the apartheid wall. The committee called the Labor/Community Committee in Solidarity
with the People of Palestine brought hundreds to the picket line including many trade unionists.
The Transport Workers Solidarity Committee TWSC http://www.transportworkers.org is working to support
an international labor blockade of Israel. Dockworkers from Sweden and Norway will also be launching
a labor boycott of all cargo and ships from Israel starting June 15, 2010.
