National Day of Action at the Ports

May 25 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

On Saturday 25 May 12:00PM, Palestine solidarity groups and Trade Unionists for Palestine will hold rallies at every port across the country as part of a national day of action. These mass demonstrations are aimed at aiding the Palestinian people against genocide. Israeli military aggression must stop. Boycotting Israeli shipping and goods through Australian ports can affect Israel’s ability to commit massacres and war crimes.

We must intervene to end the genocide and free Palestine. Israel continues with its campaign of death and destruction in Gaza, failing to comply with the International Court of Justice’s orders. The Australian government continues to provide political, economic and military support to Israel. If governments won’t act to end the genocide – the people will!

The call for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) and to break these ties with apartheid Israel has never been more urgent. The Australian Council of Trade Unions, recently released its strongest statement yet calling for an end to the genocide, including by ending all military trade with Israel.

A successful mass demonstration, backed by key unions and community support, can lay the groundwork for winning broader union support. It can also build political power and support for workers taking action against ZIM, including through taking action like industrial action and bans, to disrupt the genocidal supply chain.
