THIS ACTION IS POSTPONED. PLEASE SEE BELOW.
In Solidarity with Palestinians, especially those besieged and bombarded in Gaza, organizers, activists and Arab community members are calling on everyone in the Bay Area to start organizing to block the unloading of 2 Israeli Zim container ships at the Port of Oakland in the coming weeks.
Every Saturday, Israeli containers dock at the Port of Oakland. As we witness the genocide in Gaza, as thousands of us take the streets to challenge Zionism, as the world responds to the call for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions of Israel, the Bay Area will send a message loud and clear - Israeli Apartheid must stop and Zionism is not welcome here!!
Let's gear up to organize a powerful block at the Port in the coming weeks! It was done for South Africa in 1984, it was done for Palestine in 2010 and we will block the boat again in 2014!!
