Masar Badil calls on workers to block Israeli ships amid genocide
Masar Badil calls on workers around the world to "block and reject the appearance or docking of any Israeli ship in any global port; to refuse to load or unload any Israeli ship."
Labor activists, trade unionists, and workers’ organizations around the world have been urged by the Palestinian Alternative Revolutionary Path Movement (Masar Badil) to block Israeli ships from sailing amid the genocide in Gaza.
The movement urged people to "block and reject the appearance or docking of any Israeli ship in any global port; to refuse to load or unload any Israeli ship", adding: "The hands of the workers should not be sullied with the cargo of genocide."
The reasoning behind it, according to Masar Badil, is "a material means of besieging the occupation and supporting the colonized, occupied people of Palestine."
In its call, it praised Yemen for "blocking the use of Yemeni seas for the transportation and passage of Zionist ships and cargo."

"All states should follow the Yemeni example and prohibit the use of their ports and seas to arm this genocidal regime!"
This comes after Brigadier General Yahya Saree, the Yemeni Armed Forces' spokesperson, declared that all ships owned or operated by Israeli companies or carrying the Israeli flag would be targeted.
Masar Badil even warned that every port and company that permits Israeli ships to dock is considered "a full partner in war crimes and genocide."
"[Israel] is backed, armed, and funded by the imperialist powers – first and foremost, the United States, together with its partners in Canada, France, Germany, and Britain," it added.
It further noted, "Every port and company that allows Israeli ships of any kind to dock at its port is a full partner in war crimes and genocide with the blood of the Palestinian people on their hands and must be held accountable."
Just two days ago, the Yemeni Armed Forces announced targeting the Israeli-owned Unity Explorer and Number 9 vessels in the Bab al-Mandab Strait off the coast of Yemen, confirming direct hits on both.
Saree also addressed the US involvement in the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip, stating, "The [US] managed the war on Yemen, and [it is also] managing the current war on Gaza and Palestine."
He said the Yemeni Armed Forces are "engaged in a decisive battle against the Zionist and American enemy, and we will persist until the aggression on Gaza comes to an end."
"The Americans and Zionists will be acting in absolute idiocy if they choose to commit an aggression on Yemen," Saree stressed, confirming that the YAF will deliver a "strong and painful" response to such actions.
