In Solidarity with Palestinians, especially those beseiged and bombarded in Gaza, we will block 2 Israeli ZIM Ships from docking and unloading at the Port of Oakland.

It happened in 2010 and it will happen again!

http://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/article/Hundreds-in-Oakland-protest-Gaza-blockade-3260772.php

The Palestinian people are under attack by the state of Israel, with the support of the U.S. government. Palestinian children are being murdered, their hospitals are being bombed, and Palestinian workers are being fired, beaten, arrested, and killed for striking in response. We call on a broad coalition of Pro-Palestinian labor, human rights, and anti-war organizations to join us for direct actions and pickets against the Israeli Shipping company ZIM!

To help organize or endorse the actions email: blocktheboat [at] riseup.net

___________________________________________

The Plan for August 2nd:

-Meet at West Oakland BART at 5 AM where we will march to SSA Berth 57 at the Port at 5:10 SHARP!

-If you can't make the 5 am shift show meet at Berth 57 ASAP! We need to have as many people as possible very early in the morning to prevent the ship from being unloaded.
________________________________________

Shuttles will be provided back and forth from the West Oakland Bart to the SSA Terminal. If you have a van and can help with the shuttles, please message us.

On Monday July 21st there was a General Strike in Israel protesting the bloody and violent occupation of Palestinian lands. We believe that the working class must take a stand to defend the human rights of Palestinians.

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!!

To help organize or endorse the upcoming actions email: blocktheboat [at] riseup.net

A great group of Latino activist marched in solidarity with Palestine under the banner "Movement for the Reunification of Families." SF is receiving hundreds of children seeking refuge from US-created violence in Central America and Mexico. Please come out and support us. We must unite our struggles in the streets. There is no major march for Palestine this weekend in SF, but bring your Palestine flags and show our Latino community that we all stand together. See you Saturday!


Nuremberg Actions invites all supporters of justice in Palestine meet at the scene of the crime...the Israeli Zim liner due to dock here this weekend an easy walk down to Adeline and over the bridge where the blue superstructure of the Zim liner is anticipated
Did the Grey Panthers I learned this from get invited to this 'meeting'? ..."action was more or less postponed, per one of the organizer/supporters"...how does a 'supporter' veto the support of a dozen groups... AROC: Arab Resource and Organizing Center, Palestinian Youth Movement, US Palestinian Community Network, International Jewish Antizionist Network, ANSWER Coalition, Haiti Action Network, Al Awda, New York, Friends of Sabeel - North America , Jews for Palestinian Right of Return , International Action Center, OccupySF Action Council, Workers World Party, Lake Merritt Neighbors Organized for Peace, @healthyhoodz, Young Oakland, American Friends Service Committee ...a "supporter" who trumpets retreat?
Nuremberg Actions pager is 925-746-1168 but just meet me there if I'm not in jail
We are 100% volunteer and depend on your participation to sustain our efforts!
