    Occupy Oakland Calls For Shutdown Of ALL West Coast Ports

    Vandalism, violence, burning and shutting down the nation’s fifth busiest port weren’t 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.”

    Protesters Have A New Action Plan, And This Time It Could Seriously Hurt The Economy

    The Occupy Oakland General Assembly unanimously voted for a coordinated West Coast port shutdown to disrupt the "economic apparatus of the 1%."

    The Occupy Wall Street website calls for the "blockade and disruption of ports on the entire West Coast" of the United States.

    With 19 deepwater ports on the Pacific Coast, that will prove a tall order, but if successful would seriously impede a huge portion of American commerce.
