On June 20, 2010, the Labor Community Committee in Solidarity with the Palestinian People helped
organize mass pickets on the SSA docks in the Port Of Oakland to stop the loading and unloading of
the Zim ship Shenzehn when it sailed into the port.
The Transport Workers Solidarity Committee which includes
longshore, rail and airline workers supported the call for a full labor boycott of Israeli
ships and air travel worldwide.
The mass picket line was successful in stopping the movement of cargo on the docks with
the solidarity of ILWU Local 10 and ILWU Local 34 members for 24 hours. These trade unionists
stood by and refused to cross the picket line. An ILWU-PMA arbitrator ruled that the picket
line was a health and safety issue which allowed them under their contract to
abide by the picket line. The documentary also focuses on the continuity with the ILWU
Local 10 & ILWU Local 34 anti-apartheid labor action against South Africa in 1984
when the South African ship Nedlloyd Kimberly arrived at Pier 80 in San Francisco.
This labor action against apartheid South Africa was an important milestone in isolating
and weakening the South African apartheid regime.
This solidarity action against the Zim line was also the first direct labor action in the United States
by working people in solidarity with the unions and people of Palestine.
