Arms boat headed back to China.
Solidarity among African trade unions and human rights and faith groups blocked a Chinese ship packed with rocket grenades, mortar rounds and 3 million rounds of AK-47 ammunition from delivering its cargo destined for strife-torn Zimbabwe. After dockers and truckers from the South African Transport and Allied Workers Union (SATAWU) refused to move the cargo in Durban, the ship moved on. But with worker and human rights groups mobilized, the ship could not find another port. The weapons were likely to be used against those demanding democracy in Zimbabwe.
