Unions, labor federations and other organizations around the world have condemned Israel's deadly attack against the Gaza Freedom Flotillaon May 31. Nine people were killed and dozens seriously injured in the Israeli commando attack in international waters on ships attempting to bring humanitarian cargo to the suffering and blockaded people of Gaza. Six people aboard the ships are still missing and presumed dead. The Israeli attack on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla was a blatant act of piracy on the high seas. No
Israeli ship should be allowed to carry on trading activity anywhere in the world without facing picket lines, protests and embargo. Dock workers in several countries including South Africa, Norway, Sweden and Malaysia have declared that they will refuse to handle Israeli cargo in the coming weeks. We call on everyone who stands for justice and against occupation and apartheid
to join the June 20 picket at the Port of Oakland. This is a moment of great opportunity. In San Francisco in 1984, a picket line and
refusal to unload cargo of a ship carrying South African cargo was a key event in mobilizing the anti-apartheid movement worldwide.
