#BlockTheBoat Fails to Stop ZIM Unloading in Tacoma

BDS is attempting a new form of economic terrorism, except that it hurts American workers, and not Israel. American workers don't like that.
Move Cargo Tweet

#BlockTheBoat BDS protesters again failed to stop the unloading of the Zim ship, the time the Chicago in Tacoma.

There are reports that the anti-Israel protesters were harassing the Union workers on the site, despite ILWU Local 23 president Dean McGrath making it clear they wanted no part of the conflict and they just want to do their job,

“We are going to do what we do. Move Cargo”.

There are reports that the protesters are also called the dock workers doing their job “scabs” and stalking them during their lunch break – according to the BDSer’s tweets.

Police also on site, making sure that workers can get through unharmed. (Update: One protester was arrested, according to The News Tribune.)

The port also transported some of the longshoremen through an alternative entrance to avoid the protesters.

#BlocktheBoat BDS, trying out their brand of economic terrorism, are also trying to block the unloading of a ZIM ship in LA.

ZIM makes more that 150 calls to the Port of Tacoma every year. It is unlikely that anyone in Tacoma is interested in losing that business.

According to additional tweets, the port and the Union rep in LA has no knowledge of any work stoppages on any Israeli ships in LA either.

What worked for a short time in Oakland, isn’t going to work anywhere else… #BDSFail

  10. With ties to Tacoma, I say let them protest, then watch them be beheaded by HAMAS and ISIS/ISIL when they invade.

  11. Well when America is responsible for much of Israel’s destruction and getting away with literal murder, it’s about time BDS does something to America.

  12. Stand up to BDS, they don’t loose their jobs
