LA Anti-Apartheid Activists Are Gearing Up for Day 3 of Zim Blockade

#BlockTheBoatLA

#BlockTheBoatLA

In solidarity with the Palestinian people’s call for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Israel’s decades long apartheid regime, LA anti-apartheid activists have been reaching out for weeks to the port workers and truck drivers who service the Port of LA and have successfully blocked the unloading/loading of Zim Savannah, an Israel cargo ship, for two straight days… and counting.

About 150 people from 19 different local activist groups gathered to picket the scheduled unloading of Zim Savannah at 6:00am on Sat. Oct. 18 even though Zim delayed it’s arrival in order to avoid the scheduled protest, much like it has done in other recent #BlockTheBoat actions. Union members informed activists on Sat. that the Sun. a.m. shift had been canceled and on Sun p.m. that the Mon. a.m. shift too had been canceled. Accordingly, the next scheduled picket will be at 4:00pm on Mon. Oct. 20, Day 3 of #BlockTheBoatLA.

Oakland, Vancouver, Seattle, Los Angeles, Tampa, New Orleans, and New York are holding solidarity actions as BDS campaigns gain momentum in the face of the recent disproportionate slaughter of Gaza & the Zionist regime’s controversial land grab of almost 1000 acres of West Bank territory.
