Protesters blockaded the offices of Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) on April 15 as part of the #A15 international day of action which called for a coordinated economic blockade against Israel.

More than 40 people shut the office down for the day and staged a die-in outside the building.

MSC is the world's largest container shipping company and subcontracts its vessels to Israel shipping line ZIM, which is supporting the ongoing genocide in Gaza.

Protesters demanded MSC and the Australian government cut ties with apartheid Israel.

The action was organised by Unionists for Palestine WA.
