/*
*/What's happening?/*
The world has watched in horror as Israel has continued to bombard and 
devastate Gaza. Millions around the globe have come out in support of 
the Palestinian people and against the Zionist regime, holding massive 
marches, demonstrations, and actions. Here in the Bay, San Francisco 
witnessed some of the biggest mobilizations in recent years, with a 
series of marches, each bringing out thousands of people. It's time to 
step it up.

*/Call to Action/*
Palestine is calling us to action! Palestinians laborers, Palestinian 
General Federation Trade Union (PGFTU) 
<http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001Eq1hj4aduCr_OvdDQ_pSwz8BwGAK1LUSPT8B5llwK9xyZSuXaru78W50zjZgFm_QUhcFFMw4rEjXf1tyrlOpUWhRm9Zefzu66D9IqohU92o-B1qQcwAA5aaoIMqAmjBoUponkw4kNl50JA8ZusaHmmPc1f-tOfblxgKVMpMD3AiamceuoVpk177kbewek8cPM8zkpA8ZIbN95im_3DgKIuW7GM1K2ikdQAZqhIdDWEy3PfIdxdYk9D-J7PsDRFFGlRUvPTQSAXM=&c=iws1eNVfY6O9vejGsKmGg28eqfkRGwFNxUYyNHo_4ZZkrsZBOfTLlg==&ch=8gs4hONAoLeWQKBORvOU0MdkHFVloRWPDzQvTqmTFC-NbF--zxubHA==>, 
have called on workers around the world to refuse to handle Israel 
goods. Palestinians throughout Gaza, the West Bank and 1948 Palestine 
have demonstrated their unity in the struggle against Apartheid Israel 
and have taken to the streets in the tens of thousands, bravely facing 
Israeli military armed with US made weapons to call on the international 
community to stand with them as they resist Zionism throughout all of 
historic Palestine. We will be answering this call by organizing 
community pickets at the Port of Oakland, asking the longshoreman to 
honor this request and to stand with the people of Palestine as they 
have done in the past.

/*Historical Background*/
During apartheid in South Africa, ILWU workers made history when they 
refused to unload South African cargo in San Francisco in 1984. This 
action was a major catalyst for international anti-apartheid solidarity 
and struggle worldwide. In 2010, after a Turkish flotilla, the Mavi 
Marmara, was attacked by Israel for attempting to bring humanitarian aid 
to Gaza, we built on ILWU's history and successfully blocked the Israeli 
Zim ship from being unloaded at the Port of Oakland - the first time in 
US history an Israeli ship was blocked. We will be continuing this 
legacy by organizing to block the Israeli ship once again. And just as 
apartheid fell in South Africa, so too it will fall in Israel!

/*Sustained BDS in the Bay*/
If there is one thing that the latest Israeli attacks show, it's the 
power of Palestinian resilience. The resistance in Gaza is still alive 
and thriving, despite Israel's ongoing attempts to destroy it. But we 
should always remember that the Palestinian resistance did not begin 
with Israel's latest bombardment, nor did it begin during the last 
bombardment. It has been going on since 1948, since Israel came into 
existence. And it will not cease until Israeli apartheid falls.

We refuse to allow Israel to conduct its business as usual, here in the 
Bay and everywhere!

/Every Saturday, the Israeli owned Zim shipping line docks and unloads 
its cargo at the Port of Oakland. Let this action be the beginning of a 
sustained campaign to stop the Israeli ship from ever unloading in our 
town./
