ABOUT BLOCK THE BOAT TAMPA
Block The Boat Tampa is a small group of Palestine Solidarity activists working in solidarity with 1000’s of activists across the United States. Our goal is to disrupt and or block enough cargo ships owned by Zim (an Israeli shipping company) that Zim’s customers decide it is in their best interest to change their shipping agent. We will accomplish this through a number of diverse means which will be revealed over the next weeks. We gratefully welcome individuals and groups who want to be working partners in this long term campaign. Browse our website to learn about upcoming working sessions, events and actions.

THE CALL TO ACTION--3RD WAVE!
Palestine is calling us to action! Palestinians laborers, Palestinian General Federation Trade Union (PGFTU), have called on workers around the world to refuse to handle Israel goods. Palestinians throughout Gaza, the West Bank and 1948 Palestine have demonstrated their unity in the struggle against Apartheid Israel and have taken to the streets in the tens of thousands, bravely facing Israeli military armed with US made weapons to call on the international community to stand with them as they resist Zionism throughout all of historic Palestine. We will be answering this call by organizing community pickets at the Port, asking the longshoreman and truckers to honor this request and to stand with the people of Palestine.

BLOCK THE BOAT TAMPA has been organizing and led successful direct actions in the past several weeks. Tonight we will join them to talk about why they are doing these types of actions, about the successes of BLOCK THE BOAT organizations in Oakland and other locations, the BDS Movement, a bit about the history of this part of the Middle East, the current situation in Palestine and Israel and why these types of direct actions are so effective.

The next BLOCK THE BOAT TAMPA direct action will be at the Port of Tampa on October 11th, 2014. To see more information about the event and how you can join them, CLICK HERE!
