Block the boat! Join us on December 2nd to continue to disrupt the Israeli war machine, stand in solidarity with Palestinians and say no to Israeli ships in our port!
A ZIM ship is scheduled to be present in Port Melbourne at Swanson dock on the 2nd December.
Join us at Swanson Dock to say no to Israeli ships in our ports.
Bring banners and strong voices and be prepared to link arms with comrades as we send a strong message that businesses complicit in genocide are not welcome in our port. Note this is different dock to the last action!!
Unionists for Palestine Naarm voted to continue to support the Palestinian General Federation of Trade Unions (PGFTU) call to their fellow trade unions and workers worldwide to boycott Israel and businesses that are complicit with its apartheid regime. In an international effort called #BlockTheBoat.
The role of ZIM, the Israeli shipping line, in the development of the Israeli war machine has been relentless. It is a major transporter of weapons of mass destruction.
This is an extension to the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign called for by the Palestinian civil society in 2004.
Melbourne needs to send the message to Israel, Albanese and the Labor government that we will not be complicit in genocide! We demand an immediate ceasefire, the end of occupation, and justice for Palestine!
This, and all action for a free Palestine takes place on the unceded lands of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across this continent, the oldest continuous living culture in the world. We pay our respects to the Wurundjeri, Woi Wurrung and Boon Wurrung peoples of the mighty Kulin Nation, and acknowledge their continued connection to their lands and waters.
Always was Always will be Aboriginal land.
