As we have reported before, many workers of imperialist countries have shown solidarity to the national resistance of the Palestinian people and condemned the complicity of the imperialists in the genocide carried out by Israel. In addition, on the 3rd of November in Oregon, US, dock workers stopped the docking of a ship that was headed to Tacoma in the State of Washington to load weapons to be transported to Israel. The activists hindered the ship for nine hours despite police attacks, and another group of activists were waiting to block the ship when it arrives to Washington. In the US, multiple unions have called for the end of the occupation and US military funding of Israel, denouncing its complicity in the genocide. Similarly, port workers in Barcelona, in the Spanish State, as well as in Genoa, Italy, have refused to load any ship carrying weapons to Israel. In many countries unions have also called their members to show solidarity with the Palestinian people. You can read more details on these struggles in Ang Bayan.

Massive protests with thousands of participants have again erupted today, the 10th of November, in many neighboring countries to Palestine, such as Jordan and Egypt, as well as in Morocco and Bahrain. The regimes of these countries make a lot of noise, but still bow to their master Yankee imperialism and for their part act as complices in the genocide.
