Add comment on:Occupy Oakland's General Strike and Port Shut Down
On November 2nd, 2011 the citizens of Oakland gathered en masse at 14th and Broadway to demonstrate in the thousands against the current political-economic order. Anywhere between 5,000 and 10,000 people showed up, marching on the city center, shutting down the Port of Oakland (US's 5th busiest port) but ultimately ending in a police crackdown in the early hours. This is a summary and commentary of the days events.
