August 15, 2014 Dear Sirs,
We Doro-Chiba and Japanese working class protest against Israel's invasion and siege of Gaza--genocide of over 1,800 Palestinians including many children.
The Israel has bombed hospitals, schools and even UN shelters killing and injuring thousands.
The Palestinian trade unions, the South African Unions including COSATU, the International Transport Federation ITF and unions like Unison in the UK and around the world have condemned the Israeli attack on the Palestinian people and workers in the Gaza .
Together with these labor unions and organizations, we, Doro-Chiba, condemn the Israeli Government that has been committing atrocities in Gaza, the US Government that has been providing munitions for Israeli Government to attack Palestinian people and the Japanese Government that entered into a cooperation agreement between Israel in order to promote cooperation in development of weapons and arms trade.
Responding the call of the Transport Workers Solidarity Committee of San Francisco, we protest against Israeli shipping company ZIM Integrated Shipping Ltd.
This Israeli shipping company operates throughout the world and was closely involved in supporting the
South African apartheid regime and the Palestinian trade unions have all called for an international boycott of shipping and trade with Israel to stop the military attacks.
In June 2010, over 1,200 community and labor activists with rank and file supporters from ILWU Local 10 of San Francisco supported a picket of a Zim Line ship to prevent it from loading and unloading.
On August 16, a mass picket line of labor and community activists is planned to stop the movement of bloody Israeli cargo.TWSC is calling on all ILWU Local 10 workers to honor the picket line.
We fully support the mass picketing on August 16. This is the kind of action that can really challenge the US supported Zionist terrorism. We, Doro-Chiba, also fight alongside with them.
Israeli Government, Immediately stop genocide in Gaza!
Zim Line, Stop shipping of arms and ammunition for massacre!
Sincerely,
International Labor Solidarity Committee of Doro-Chiba (National Railway Motive Power Union of Chiba)
