Tampa activists will try again to block ship of Israeli company


A cargo ship that was the target last month of human rights activists boycotting Israeli companies is on its way back to Port Tampa Bay. And the group Block the Boat Tampa will be back at the port beginning Saturday morning to try to stop the Zim Alabama from unloading its cargo.

Thursday WMNF interviewed Dezeray Lyn, an organizer with Block the Boat Tampa.
