Block the Boat – End Israeli Apartheid!
Why Block Zim at the Ports? ZIM shipping line transported weapons and European settlers from as far back as 1948, playing a central role in the creation of the state of Israel and ethnic cleansing of Palestine. Now it’s responsible for shipping Israeli ammunition used on poor, black and brown communities all across the US. One-third owned by the Israeli government, Zim fuels a significant portion of Israel’s economy. Challenging Zim cuts a lifeline of Israeli colonialism and exposes the strength of US-Israeli ties.

NOTE: Stop Zim Action Committee, the group that organized the successful September 27 picket that sent the ZIM Shanghai out to sea in one day without a container unloaded, will be supporting this October picket, and will help to sustain the picket multiple days, if needed, if the ZIM ship remains in our Oakland port beyond October 25.
Please join this very powerful campaign that is putting enormous economic strain on the Israeli Zim shipping line and ultimately huge pressure on Israel, expressing global intolerance of the occupation and criminal violations against the people of Palestine.
Another victory: LA activists had a very successful ZIM ship blockade last weekend, delaying unloading for 2 full days.
Your presence is needed, whenever possible. Please join this weekend’s Oakland Port action!
