An Israeli-owned cargo ship prevented by pro-Palestinian demonstrators from unloading in the Oakland Port will try to unload in Los Angeles.

The Zim Shanghai docked in Los Angeles on Tuesday morning, according to tracking by the website marinetraffic.com. It was still carrying its original cargo.

The ship, which is owned by Zim Integrated Shipping Services, Israel’s largest shipping company, was unable to unload Saturday after some 200 activists prevented workers at the Oakland Port from getting near the ship. Approximately 50 police officers were on hand but did not intervene.

The International Longshore and Warehouse Union released a statement saying, “The ILWU is not among the groups organizing the protests, and the leadership and membership of the ILWU have taken no position on the Israel/Gaza conflict.”
