General Strike: Occupy protesters shut down Port of Oakland


Over 10,000 Occupy Wall Street protesters have shut down the port of Oakland in California. It follows a violent police crackdown there when police stormed the demonstrators' staging ground last week. A former US Marine suffered a fractured skull when he was hit by a projectile when police tried to clear a protest camp in central Oakland.

BREAKING: Oakland General Strike Paralyzes City, Port

Huge crowds gathering and marching in solidarity with Occupy Oakland's branch of the Occupy Worldwide Movement have shut down the port of Oakland as of 5:30:pm:pdt. Crowds and marchers gathered as the day progressed and are mounting and surging at this hour.
Oakland city officials including Mayor Jean Quan and Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan are addressing the local television media, speaking in conciliatory terms and appealing for calm.
Chanting "Our streets! Our port! Power to the people!" crowds are swirling through the port area and are scattered through the streets of downtown Oakland all the way back to the city's civic center where the controversy began nearly a week ago with a police raid on the Occupy Oakland encampment at Frank Ogawa Plaza.
