Protesting the Israeli Zim Lines ship

While most IJANers from the Bay Area were at the the 2010 US Assembly of Jews in Detroit, some IJANers who stayed in the Bay took part in the 5 am Sunday historic morning picket, with approximately 800 other people, of the Israeli Zim Lines ship in the port of Oakland. It was a very successful action and prevented the ship from being unloaded. This is the first time this has happened in the US and also the first time many local labor groups and unions have taken action in support of Palestinian people and it is a precedent setting action and a big step forward for the BDS movement both in the Bay and nationally.
