Norway, Sweden boycott Israel


Swedish dockworkers launched a weeklong boycott of Israeli ships and cargo on Wednesday to protest Israel's raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla that killed nine pro-Palestinian activists last month.

Some 1,500 members of the Swedish Port Workers Union began the boycott at all Sweden's ports which handle more than 95% of the country's foreign trade. The action is planned to end on June 29.  [yNet News, Swedish dockworkers boycott Israeli ships, 6/23/2010]

Requiring those Captcha codes at least temporarily, in the hopes that it quells the flood of comment spam I've been receiving.
