We Vow To Disrupt & Inflict Economic Damage on Zim Shipping

 

Let’s keep up the pressure on Israel to end its occupation and colonization of Palestinian lands and its attacks on the Palestinian people!

 

Less than a week following Operation Protective Edge, which took 2,168 Palestinian lives, wounded 11,000, flattened entire neighborhoods, and displaced more than half a million residents – nearly 1/3 of the entire population – Israel announced that it would be annexing 1000 acres that belong to Palestinians in the West Bank, an act amounting to another declaration of War.[1]

 

According to the UN, 69% of those killed during the barbaric assault were civilians.[2] Six UN-run schools acting as civilian shelters were hit seven times by Israel, despite the UN actively communicating the coordinates of the schools to Israel and Israel’s obligation under humanitarian law to evacuate civilians.[3]

 

As Palestinians struggle to rebuild yet again and to bring water, medicine, and food to survivors in Gaza, and as Palestinians continue to resist illegal Israeli colonization, let’s show Palestinians that the Pacific Northwest is continuing to Boycott, Divest & Sanction Israel in solidarity with Palestinian demands for justice and freedom.

 

Zim Integrated Shipping LLC: Not welcome in our ports!Israeli shipping company Zim Integrated Shipping is controlled by the Israel Corp and the Ofer Brothers Group, two extremely powerful entities in Israel. We are sending a clear message to Zim that they are not welcome here in the Pacific Northwest unless they do everything within their power to support Palestinian demands for freedom and equality.The international Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement emerged from the call for international solidarity with the Palestinians in their struggle against genocide, siege, and land theft. The Block The Boatcampaign is being organized all throughout North America as one facet of the BDS Movement. We intend to continue to hurt Zim’s profits, as we join the fight to disrupt business-as-usual for Israel.https://www.facebook.com/blocktheboatnw
