Report from August 16-17 Block the Boat actions
Double Victory!
Israeli ship blocked for 2 days!

The weekend of August 16 and 17, it was no more business as usual for the apartheid state of Israel in the Bay Area.

On Saturday a mass mobilization stopped the unloading of an Israeli cargo ship. The Zim Piraeus was scheduled to dock and unload at the Port of Oakland on Saturday, August 16.

A rally at the West Oakland BART train station was followed by a march of more than 4,000 people to the port gates. The march to the port was spirited with chanting led by members of the Arab Youth Organization.  The rally at the port also showed solidarity with the family of Michael Brown, the 18-year-old African American man shot and killed by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson and the people of Ferguson, Missouri. Demonstrators lined up facing the police line with their hands up chanting, “Hands up, don’t shoot.”

AIM Leader Dennis Banks presents film "A Good Day to Die"


We are proud to host Dennis Banks, Native American leader and co-founder of the American Indian Movement (A.I.M.), to speak and present the documentary "A Good Day to Die." From the Anishnabe nation and born in Leech Lake Reservation, Minnesota, Dennis led historic struggles for the civil and human rights of Native American people, beginning in 1968. This stunning and compelling film presents an intimate look at Dennis Banks' life beginning with his early experience in racist boarding schools, his military service in Japan, his transformative experience in Stillwater State Prison and subsequent founding of a movement that, through confrontational actions in Washington DC, South Dakota and Wounded Knee, changed the lives of American Indians.
