OAKLAND -- Protesters have effectively shut down maritime operations at the Port, Director Omar Benjamin said at a media briefing Tuesday, as more than 4,000 people are at the gates.
The crowd stretched several blocks down Middle Harbor Road leading into the port as they begin their attempt to shut down the port for start of the 7 p.m. night shift.

I prefer to think of them as "targets"....
Good. At least we know where they'll be. Do you want a clean kill or do you want to send a message?
Would this be that insurrection that Napolitano was talking about following on Twitter???
grassroots, wouldn’t you say?
WOW! Just WOW! 4,000 you say??? Just wow. That’s a massive amount for a general strike and almost as large as the number of people in the local High School. Just wow. 4,000!!!!
I will check out my guns, ammo and food this weekend.
LOL!! He had to specify "organic" to maintain some hippy cred in the midst of his citrusticly capitalist activity.
It’s disgusting that the city of Oakland is letting this pack of tattoed freaks and masked goons get away with destroying businesses (even including ones like Whole Foods, which treat their employees with TLC) and terrorizing citizens.
I’m really disgusted. The city has a responsibility to its citizens and its businesses, and it is abandoning this responsibility entirely.
OPD just requested mutual aid..
(Help from surrounding PD’s.)
I’ve not been to Oakland in decades, but my perception is that they aspire to be the west coast version of Detroit.
If I remember correctly isn’t disrupting the economic activity at the ports of the United States with this type of violence and interference an act of terrorism?
Obama’s people at work trying to destroy this country.
If they block the port, theyre interfering with State & Federal commerce on which OTHER workers jobs depend on.
These people are dumb. Really DUMB.
Its an act of war on others livelihood.
Theyre essentially economic terrorists.
I was just watching this bunch of dumb communists:
People are going to get hurt. They claim they are “not violent” but they are oppressively obstructive and as such, they are stealing other people’s right to make a living.
Because it’s a declaration of non-violent warfare/theivery on other people, it necessarily requires some form of violence or force to get rid of them.
Aren’t the ports heavily unionized?
Seems they’re biting one of the hands that feeds them.
Just in time for the holidays...
Yes, if you’re Southern, Christian or a combination of the two.
Why? Are stevedores giving out bogus home loans?
So the barbarians are at the gate. Well, time to get out the boiling oil. I love a good siege gone bad.
Vlad. Calling Vlad. Barbarians at the gate. You know what’s at stake (sorry for the pun - NOT).
Love it when the Left eats its’ own. Mayor Quan is a leftist twerp and she is being outgunned by her own radicals. Love it.
The more they protest, the more conservatives are created from fence-straddling independents. Love it!
Black block anarchists / useful idiots for the communists after the revolution they always find themselves standing at the edge of an open mass grave asking the same stupid question “whats going on? why me?” then bang a pistol shot to the back of the head. The booger eating morons never learn.
