BACKGROUND

In 2014, the Arab Resource and Organizing Center (AROC) led #BlocktheBoat, the longest blockade of Israeli ZIM ships in history. ZIM is apartheid Israel’s largest and oldest cargo shipping company. This action was successful because of the leadership of Palestinian organizers, and the powerful solidarity from International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) Local 10 port workers. ZIM ships have not returned to Oakland since.

Today, as apartheid Israel has once again waged immense violence and destruction on the Palestinian population that has prompted unprecedented worldwide resistance and solidarity, we have learned that ZIM-operated ships are attempting to return to Oakland this month for the first time since 2014.

We are calling on communities across the Bay Area to be ready to mobilize to the Port of Oakland to #BlockTheBoat again, and communities across the world to join in solidarity by building relationships with your local unions, raising awareness about Block the Boat, and amplifying the call for BDS and worker solidarity from the Palestinian workers in Gaza.. We will again send the message that racism, and apartheid-profiteering will not be welcome anywhere.

BREAKING from Ahmad Manasra's defense team: Ahmad will be charged for a "terrorist act" when in reality, he did nothing.

Ahmad was only 13 when Israeli settlers ruthlessly beat him & Israeli soldiers put him in prison—he was & continues to be abused by Israeli forces. https://twitter.com/uspcn/status/1539578942977359873
