Still from RUPTLY video
Picketers gathered at the Port of Oakland in California this weekend to prevent an Israeli shipping vessel from unloading its cargo in protest over the situation in Gaza, where the death toll has topped 2,000.
In what was a community-wide effort, dock workers that showed up for the evening shift on Sunday did not disturb the integrity of the picket line, which was there in anticipation of the ship, operated by Zim Shipping Services Ltd.
Because the line wasn’t crossed, no unloading could take place. Organizer Lara Kiswani confirmed that “they’re honoring our community picket and they haven’t been crossing.”
