About 1,500 Swedish dockworkers have begun a week-long boycott of Israeli ships and cargo to
protest the Gaza flotilla attack and focus world attention on the
suffering of Gaza's 1.5 million people. The historically activist
Dockworkers Union took similar actions to protest Chile's Pinochet
regime and South Africa's apartheid.
"This is our contribution, this is what we can do." - Erik
Helgeson, ombudsman at
the Swedish Dockworkers Union.
