Occupy movement aims to blockade major ports

Occupy movements plan to shut down major ports along the U.S. West Coast and Canada’s Pacific seaboard in a day of action next month, they said Wednesday.

In an announcement hours after a two-month-old anti-Wall Street protest camp was evicted in Los Angeles, they said they plan to strike back against the “nationally co-ordinated attack on the Occupy movement.”

Local Occupy movements in San Diego, L.A., Oakland – where protests shut down the port for 24 hours last month – Portland, Taco-ma and Seattle will support the Dec. 12 day of action, they said.

Farther north, protesters in the Canadian port city of Vancouver and in Anchorage, Alaska, will also “join the economic blockade and disruption of the one per cent,” they said, referring to the wealth-owning elite targeted by the “99 per cent” protesters.

“We’re shutting down these ports because of the union busting and attacks on the working class by the one per cent,” said Barucha Peller of the West Coast Port Blockade Assembly, of Occupy Oakland, in a statement.
