Vandalism, violence, burning and shutting down the nations fifth busiest port werent enough for Occupy Oakland. On Friday, the General Assembly for the group voted unanimously for a coordinated shutdown of ports on the entire West Coast on December 12."
According to a statement from Occupy Oakland, this move is in response to coordinated attacks on the occupations and attacks on workers across the nation. We call on each West Coast occupation to organize a mass mobilization to shut down its local port.
Occupy Los Angeles had already called for action against one shipper at that port, stating, occupation will take place at at least one facility owned by SSA Marine, a shipping company belonging to Goldman Sachs, (coordinated with a possible port shut down by the port truck drivers).

...and let me explain why I feel that way. I’ve been unemployed since 2005; do you see me out there?
i don’t think the unions will like this.
The unions aren’t going to allow a port shutdown. They might join in for a day long slowdown but aren’t going to be too aggressive about attacking their meal ticket.
When is it sedition? Where the eff is Homeland Security? Is it only sedition when a conservative is involved. FUBO!
BULL CONNOR PLEASE!
This is a busy season when they’re picking up the big money overtime.
Dock union goons vs hippie protesters who will come out on top>
Nope. I see you behind a computer with a fresh signup date.
Agree, the goonions are not going to go along with this.
Good, shut them down. That won’t help Urkel’s reelection campaign.
That is a national security issue and it should be handled swiftly and with extreme force.
I am not so sure about the West (Left) Coast longshoreman’s union. This is the union that the late Harry Bridges helped form-Bridges was a commmunist in good standing from Austrialia.
The East Coast longshoreman’s union, the ILA, would not support OWS. This union as I recalled supported Nixon in 1972.
Well, I am not here to start any trouble. Sorry.
I feel like I've gone back in time ... to the 60s.
I’ll vouch for him. He has a few postings that look OK in the local (state) group.
The beauty of all of this is that Obama stepped right up and owned this OWS garbage from the beginning.
Nancy Pelosi and others joined in.
Butt-bite coming up....next exit on the right.
More like the 70’s and the Teamster’s. I remember it well as they threatened my family. B@stards.
