US protesters target ZIM

San Francisco: A Californian group protesting Israel’s military offensive in Gaza is set to try and block two ZIM containerships from calling at the Port of Oakland this Saturday.

Organizers of the event include the Bay Area Labor Committee for Peace and Justice, which describes itself as an anti-war group that “works actively to promote a just solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.”

A similar protest against a ZIM ship in 2010 was held by hundreds of Bay Area activists condemning Israel’s blockade of the Gaza Strip.  [30/07/14]
