event-cover-OCT**Please forward widely to your networks and organizations**

Accessibility Update
To increase accessibility for the march and rally at the Port, we’ll still be running shuttles from West Oakland BART. If you are able to help with shuttling at 3PM, please contact us as transportationblocktheboat@gmail.com.

There will be a wheelchair loading van at the event. If you expect to need it, please contact us at the email address above. Rides will still be available for those that have not contacted us ahead of time.

 

TRANSPORTATION SUPPORT

We need lots of support to keep up the momentum and show up again in record numbers — by showing up to make your voice heard but also by helping to ensure that all folks who want to participate are able to get to the Port.

We are specifically looking for folks who can help out with transportation and carpooling, including wheelchair accessible vehicles. *IF YOU HAVE ACCESS TO A WHEEL CHAIR ACCESSIBLE VAN OR NEED ONE TO ATTEND, PLEASE LET US KNOW.*

If you can provide transportation support or if you need a ride, PLEASE FILL OUT THIS FORM to let us know, and we will follow up with you to confirm. If you’d like to email us instead of filling out the online form, that works too! Email contact:transportationblocktheboat@gmail.com

If you can answer yes to these questions, please do consider participating with transportation:

  • Are you able to pick up people from other places and drive them to West Oakland BART starting at 4:45am?
  • Do you have a car or van you can use to drive people to the Port at 5am from West Oakland BART?

If you cannot support this action through carpooling, loaning a car or van, or bringing your rad self, please consider making a donation to Arab Resource and Organizing (AROC), which will help cover the numerous costs of this event, all of which goes directly to AROC to continue building movements for justice in Palestine.

Let’s boycott Israeli Apartheid and stop the ship from ever unloading in our town. From Seattle to Oakland to Los Angeles and beyond: turn the Israeli ship around!
