Occupiers Shut Down Oakland Port

Occupy protesters in Oakland shut down the city’s port on Monday, a move that prompted the port to cancel all overnight shifts. Protesters along the West Coast targeted ports in a move they said was meant to hurt Goldman Sachs, which owns a stake in the largest cargo-terminal operator. In Portland, Ore., protesters also succeeded in partially shutting down the city’s port. “What has this accomplished? This is disrupting the 99 percent,” Oakland port spokesman Isaac Kos-Read told CNN. Oakland Mayor Jean Quan agreed: “They are saying ... they have to get the attention of the ruling class. I think the ruling class is probably laughing and people in this city will be crying this Christmas.”
