9-26-14 2:30PM: Reports that Saturday (5AM) work schedule will be implemented. ZIM SHANGHAI is, currently, expected on Saturday 5AM as originally scheduled but may change. Please stay tuned.
9-26-14 1:32PM: Since #BlockTheBoat and autonomous online organizers made history last August 16-20 by blocking the apartheid-Israeli Zim Piraeus cargo ship from unloading for four straight days, Zim has been dancing around several US/Canadian ports from Vancouver to Tampa in order to avoid community protests that have garnered organized labor’s support in blocking the unloading/loading of Zim’s cargo ships.
Consistent with Mossad’s old motto, “By Way of Deception, Thou Shalt Do War”, Zim has fruitlessly attempted to fool anti-apartheid activists by delaying, u-turning, changing berths, etc. and this time is no different. Since yesterday, organizers (@14fp, @violentfanon, @hyphy_republic, @StopZIMOak) have been reporting that ZIM SHANGHAI is ahead of schedule and that there may be two different work schedules, one with berthing at 5PM Friday and one at 5AM Saturday.
Please, stay tuned as a call for action may be made for 5PM, Friday evening, ahead of the scheduled 5AM Saturday morning call.
