SFGH UCSF Healthcare Workers Protest Israeli US Genocide In Gaza Against Palestinians

by Labor Video Project
San Francisco healthcare workers from San Francisco General Hospital and UCSF walked off the job and rallied on Friday November 4, 2023 to protest the massacre and genocide against the Palestinian people in Gaza. They talked about the conditions of healthcare workers and their patients.
Over 100 healthcare workers walked out at San Francisco General Hospital and rallied to demand an end to the massive criminal bombing of the people of Gaza and the genocide of Palestinians. Their anger and pain over the attacks on hospitals and healthcare workers who are taking care of the injured was powerful as they recounted the stories of workers under these conditions.

They were also angry that Hospital management and City officials are telling healthcare workers to remain silent about the massacres and loss of life caused by US supported Israel.

The continuing actions by Israel and the US to allow these war crimes have led to the death of over 8,000 including thousands of children by the US supported Israeli military.

They also condemned the Democratic Party politicians in California and nationally who have supported the continued terror and war crimes by Israel and the US government.
Trade unionists including Brenda Barros, SEIU 1021 San Francisco General Hospital Chapter president and Lisa Milos a member of CWA UPTE UCSF talked about the fight at the SF Labor Council on a labor boycott of Israel and the shutdown of discussion by action of AFL-CIO president Liz Schuler who sent a letter to the Council ordering them not to talk about a boycott of Israel.

The leadership of the SF Labor Council also colluded with the Zionists to stop any solidarity action by San Francisco trade unionists.

Speakers talked about what what healthcare workers in the US need to do about it.

Dr. Leigh Kimberg, a primary care doctor and professor at UCSF, and a person of Jewish descent, said the destruction happening in Gaza “is wrong.” Kimberg said her ancestors died in the Treblinka concentration camp during the Holocaust, and both her grandfathers had fled anti-semitic persecution. “If we truly want to live in peace, we must find ways to stand together against the ethnic cleansing and genocide of any peoples.”
