For the last several days, the threat of our #BlockTheBoat protest has kept a cargo ship operated by ZIM – apartheid Israel’s largest and oldest shipping company – from docking at the Port of Oakland. We are winning! Our people power is working, and sending a clear message that Israel’s ongoing settler-colonialism, occupation, and violence against the Palestinian people will come with a heavy price. Every hour that ZIM cargo ships remain undocked and unloaded is a huge victory, as it means that the apartheid state of Israel is losing enormous amounts of money.

We are now calling on communities everywhere to organize solidarity actions with Oakland, and hold a community picket to block a ZIM-operated ship at your port during this week of action against the apartheid-profiteering ZIM shipping line! Take action to stand in solidarity with our victorious #BlockTheBoat effort in Oakland, and amplify the impacts against the Israeli ZIM company everywhere. Build with port workers in solidarity, and encourage them to heed the call from labor unions in Gaza asking workers everywhere not to handle Israeli cargo or engage with Israeli businesses. Together, let’s demonstrate that we will no longer watch as the U.S. and countries all over the world continue their business as usual to enable Israeli apartheid. Let’s make clear that ZIM’s apartheid-profiteering will not be welcome at ports anywhere! 

Just as the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions movement helped turn the tide and bring down apartheid in South Africa, so too will our international solidarity and actions today help Palestinians bring about a free Palestine, from the river to the sea.

.@christineahn: Biden needs to end Korea war with a peace agreement. We need to establish trust first. We need to challenge this idea that massive US military presence abroad makes us safer here. There are over 800 US military bases around the world. #FeministPeaceInitiative

When we talk about the last 20 years and the catastrophic consequences of the WoT in Afghanistan, there were key players, corporations, and individuals who benefited tremendously from war. They benefited from our people's suffering. #FeministPeaceInitiative @ggjalliance

.@hodakatebi: We need a vast & holistic response. The culture of militarism has permeated the society & so the work is multi-layered: saying no to militarism, working to abolish police & prisons domestically. We need to build visionary movements rooted in a shared struggle.

"US citizens should never agree to solve any political problem by starting a new war. Never allow your presence in the US to be used to approve war on another part of the world...Sanctions never work, it is the people who are starved." - @Yanar_Mohammed #FeministPeaceInitiative

"When I deployed to Afghanistan, I truly believed I was fighting for their democracy. When I got there, it was obvious that we were doing more harm than good & that corporations were running the show. There was rampant unaccountability." @BrittDeBarros #FeministPeaceInitiative
