BtBNW directions to term 18 Spokane Street fishing area
How to get to term 18 via meeting at the Spokane Street fishing area, of which the offices of Zim and SSA are just down the way west of.
Spokane Street fishing area is immediately east of SSA Marine term 18
1050 SW Spokane St.
Seattle, WA 98134
Spokane Street fishing area, just east of the Spokane St. Bridge, SW Spokane St, under the West Seattle bridge. The 21 & 21 Exp goes to 1st & Spokane, and 125 bus also goes from downtown and from West Seattle; all stop west of there in West Seattle, at Chelan Ave SW and SW Spokane St. and can walk back east along the Alki bike path. Drivers can find parking in these areas and walk over.
There is a convenient dirt parking strip median on the road west of SSA near the front of the Zim office park, fits 20 cars, and there are several parking spaces at the fishing spot. It has been discouraged not to park east of there, by Spokane & Alaskan Way, because that’s ILWU local 19 parking area, of whom are not in solidarity.
On July 13, 2014, from under Israeli bombardment, the Palestinian General Federation of Trade Unions and more than 100 other organizations called for solidarity.
An impressive Block the Boat Coalition came together in the SF Bay Area and accomplished the longest Blockade of an Israeli Ship in History preventing the unloading of a Zim ship by creating a picket that the ILWU local deemed in could not cross.
Just before the successful Bay Area blockade, two weeks before a Zim ship was scheduled to arrive in Tacoma (and then Seattle), activists from the Bay Area reached out to call for a West Coast Blockade. Local activists in Tacoma and Seattle succeeded in causing Zim days of delays and inflicting financial costs. We sent the message no more business as usual for Zim as long as the company is complicit with the ongoing blockade and bombardment of the captive population of Palestinians in Gaza.
And we will continue to send this same message.
