Protesters plan to block Israel-owned commercial vessels from docking at Port of Oakland

Bay Area activists are planning to block two commercial shipping tankers partially owned by the Israel Corporation from docking and unloading at the Port of Oakland on Saturday in support of the Palestinian people, according to event organizers.

Protesters plan to block two Zim Integrated Shipping Ltd. commercial vessels scheduled to dock and unload at the Port of Oakland.

According to Zimís website, the company was established in 1945 and is one of the largest carriers in the global container shipping industry.

Protesters are singling out Zim ships because 32 percent of the company is owned by Israel Corporation, which was founded in 1968 by the Israeli government is Israelís largest holding company.

Zimís remaining shares are owned by financial institutions and ship-owners, according to the companyís website.

Organizers of the event include the Bay Area Labor Committee for Peace and Justice. The group describes itself as an anti-war group consisting of trade unionists, labor and social justice activists and retired union members from around the San Francisco Bay Area.

"Bay Area Leftists plan to get arrested".


Because that is what will happen if they try to cause problems at the port of San Francisco. The SFPD is not in charge, DHS is.

The protesters should chain themselves to concrete blocks and jump in the bay to block the ships.

Hey that would work or at least it is worth a try, several attempts need to be made because this may need practice.

As noted, it's the Port of Oakland, which is across the Bay from SF.

Oakland's Rep in the House used to be Ron "Red" Dellums, and the current Rep is his hand-picked successor. The current Mayor is a fruitcake who supported the Occupooers, and Jerry Brown is a recent previous mayor. So, yes, the residents of Oakland are that in the tank for Lib & Prog Ds. I'm sure many/most of the protestors will be union-paid rent-a-mob, with Berserkeley well represented. This are probably the same union thugs who tried to block the shipment of supplies to US troops in Iraq.

Oakland is next door to Berkely, and I think that since the Black Panthers settled there in the 60s and 70s, the craziness flows back and forth between the two cities.

Be a real shame if a 40-foot High-cube accidentally landed on them...

So the protesters will be preventing the Longshore Union workers from doing their jobs?
