Though protesters attempted to block workers from entering the Port of Tacoma on Saturday to unload a ship owned by Zim Integrated Shipping Services, an Israeli shipping company, workers entered through a different route and unloaded the ship without incident.

The Tacoma News-Tribune reported that about 100 protesters had stood at the gates of the port starting Saturday morning to attempt to keep workers from unloading goods from the Chicago. The protesters did not congregate on Sunday, and are expected to gather at the Port of Seattle at 4:00 Monday afternoon to attempt to blockade the ship there.
