Port of Oakland: ANSWER & Other Radical Leftist Groups Prevent Unloading Of Israeli Cargo Ship (Updated)


Funny how ANSWER states: Stop the War & end racism now. Hypocrites.


Hundreds of demonstrators, gathering at the Port of Oakland before dawn, prevented the unloading of an Israeli cargo ship.

The demonstrators, demanding an end to Israel's blockade of the Gaza Strip, picketed at Berth 58, where a ship from Israel's Zim shipping line is scheduled to dock later today. The day shift of longshoremen agreed not to cross the picket line[WTF?...ed]

International pressure to end the Gaza closure has increased since Israeli commandos stormed a flotilla of ships attempting to run the blockade on May 31, killing nine people. Last week, Israeli officials announced that they would loosen but not lift the blockade, allowing more goods to enter the impoverished area.

You mean how the Israeli commandos stormed the flotilla like this:

Again, Longshoremen won't cross a feckin protest picket sign? WTF is that all about?
