’Israeli’ Cargo Ship Heads for LA to Unload Despite Oakland Protest


An “Israeli”-owned container ship that was blocked from unloading its cargo at the Port of Oakland by pro-Palestinian protesters over the weekend was headed to Los Angeles on Monday, according to a ship-tracking website.

The Zim Shanghai left Oakland with its cargo still onboard on Sunday evening, according to the website marinetraffic.com. It was expected to arrive in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

Some 200 people angry over “Israel’s” recent aggression on the seized Gaza Strip staged a protest of the Zim Shanghai at the Port of Oakland on Saturday morning and again that afternoon.

Representatives for Zim International Shipping Lines could not be reached for comment on Monday.

More than 2,100 Palestinians, most of them civilians, were martyred by “Israel” in its 50 days of aggression in July and August, according to the Gaza health ministry.
