Zim Piraeus finally leaves Oakland

Oakland: The hounded containership Zim Piraeus has left the Port of Oakland after days of protest from locals angered by Israel’s actions in Gaza. The ship is now thought to be heading back across the Pacific to Vostochny in the far east of Russia. The ship was unloaded overnight and departed in Wednesday, a long time after its scheduled arrival and departure last Saturday. Other Zim ships are likely to be the targets of protests along the US West Coast this week.  [21/08/14]
