What's goin on? Occupy will shut down the west coast!


Shutdown the Port on December 12th

On December 12th, Occupy Portland will join cities including San Diego, Los Angeles, Oakland and Tacoma for a West Coast Port Shutdown.  We will stage mass mobilizations to march on the ports, create community pickets, and effectively shutdown the hubs of commerce.  This action will be in the same fashion of Occupy Oakland when they shut down the Port of Oakland on November 2nd on the day of their general strike. The Oakland Port Shutdown was a historic and effective action, and the memory of that night on the port lives in the hearts of people across Oakland and around the country.  Occupy Portland’s participation in this day of action was approved by the General Assembly on November 26th with near unanimous consent.
We will blockade all of the West Coast Ports on December 12th in solidarity with longshoremen, port workers and truckers in their struggle against the 1%! Together we are unstoppable! Strike while the iron is hot!
