Activists Block Israeli Cargo Ship From Entering Port of Oakland →
Thousands of pro-Palestinian activists have successfully blocked an Israeli ship that was scheduled to dock at the port of Oakland in California on Saturday. The boat had been expected to dock in the early morning hours and protesters had planned to show up at 5:00 am Saturday morning to block the ship. But as word spread that the ship had delayed its arrival at Oakland in an apparent attempt to avoid the protest the protest was pushed back until 3:00pm. The protesters plan to form a picket line to prevent work crews from unloading the ship, if, and when it docks.

Seventeen countries abstained, including Germany, France, and the United Kingdom.
