300 people at blocking both entrances to the docks where the Zim ship is to be unloaded.

Israeli Ship NOW Being Picketted @ Oakland Docks;

Live Webcam Updates Sun Jun 20, 2010 at 07:07:32 AM PDT

This could be history; a first in the United States; joining actions in many countries.

Just left the Oakland Docks where 300 people are blocking the entrances to two gates into the berth where the Israeli Zim cargo ship is to be unloaded. The action started this morning at 5:30am PST. The longshore workers are scheduled to start their shift at 7:00 and 8:00 am this morning.

When the workers find the way blocked with a labor-community picket they will meet and vote as to whether to cross that picket line. As I left the West Oakland BART station people were continuning to slowly stream in and shuttles were taking people to the picket line. BART will start operating at 8 am.

A live webcast is planned; if it is available it will be seen hereIsraeli Zim Ship Lines Protest Live Video Stream
