(en) Canada, Collectif Emma Goldman - United States: Oakland Port Workers Union Refuses to Unload Cargo from Israeli Ship (ca, de, it, fr, pt)[machine translation]

Date Fri, 11 Jun 2021 08:25:33 +0300

Text from the website of the Palestinian news and information agency WAFA. Link to the original, here. ---- California, June 5, 2021, WAFA - The Oakland Port Workers Union, in the US state of California, refused to unload cargo from an Israeli ship in the port after infiltrating in the early hours of the morning. ---- The ship "Volance" of the Israeli company "Zim" infiltrated the port in the early morning, in an attempt to unload its cargo, but the union of port workers refused to unload it, helped by the arrival of demonstrators supporting Palestinian rights. ---- It should be noted that the ship "Zim" has been stranded for two weeks on the high seas and cannot dock in the port, after militants confronted it and prevented it from reaching shore.

Namely, a coalition of American unions and activists launched a solidarity campaign a few days ago, calling on portworkers' unions around the world to prevent Israeli ships from disembarking, during a week of solidarity with Palestine which begins on June 2 until the 9 of this month.

It is also not the first time that activists and pro-Palestinians have prevented the unloading of cargoes from Israeli ships at American ports. In September 2014, demonstrators in several American ports prevented Israeli ships from unloading their cargoes in protest against the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip.

During the same month, demonstrators prevented the unloading of an Israeli ship called "Alabama", owned by the Israeli company "Zim", in the port of Tampa in Florida.

Boycott campaigns against Israel are escalating daily at all levels in American cities and states, and large new sectors of organizations, movements, civil institutions, university students and unions are involved.
