Israeli Ships not Welcome in Vancouver

See video

Dozens of activists set up an information picket at Deltaport this morning, designed to slow the transport of containers belonging to the Israeli shipping company Zim. Demonstrators gave truckers and passers-by information about the growing refusal by workers to unload and transport cargo from Israel or shipped by Israeli companies. Vancouver Media Co-op correspondents filed this report.

Wonderful action - thank you!

Palestinian civil society calls for international solidarity with boycotts, divestment and sanctions (BDS) a movement which is growing rapidly. (www.pacbi.org/ www.bdsmovement) These are the same non-violent resistance tactics that MLK used in our own civil rights movement to overcome institutionalized segregation. These non-violent measures should be maintained until Israel:

1. Ends its occupation and colonization of all Arab lands and dismantles the Wall;

2. Recognizes the fundamental rights of the Arab-Palestinian citizens of Israel to full equality; and

3. Respect, protects and promotes the rights of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and properties as stipulated in UN resolution 194.
