Oakland, CA Boycott of Israeli Ship: June 20, 2010
Boycott. Divest. Sanction.

Costing an apartheid government real money for their actions- it was a key strategy against apartheid South Africa. Humanitarians, activist, organizers, justice-minded global citizens in the US are renewing their campaigns against the Israeli government's treatment of Palestine/Palestinians.

Boycott. Divest. Sanction.

Filmmaker notes: Shot on Canon T2i with mostly MC Rokkor -X PG 58mm lens (kit lens on about 15% of the video), edited with FCP, no color correction.

End note: This is a super rough draft, I am planning a huge journey in the next day or so, so I could only spend a few hours editing. If anyone wants footage for their organization, news outlet or otherwise please let me know- I took hours of footage at this historic event. There is much more from everyone interviewed as well as few interviewees that didn't make this cut simply due to my own time constraints.
