APL WAS SHUT DOWN! WORKERS FROM THE FIRST SHIFT WENT HOME BECAUSE THE ARBITRATOR STATED THAT THE PROTEST POSED A "HEALTH AND SAFETY HAZARD"! THE WORKERS STILL GET PAID!!!! ILWU workers who were not participating in the protest have been shot with rubber bullets and a ILWU business agent has reportedly been arrested.

There has been extroadinary police violence at this morning's dock action, including tear gas, concussion grenades, police running over people with motorcycles and rubber bullets. It is likely that this violence was called for by the Mayor's office, which generally has a practice on non-confrontation with pickets. Pickets have been entirely peaceful. Over 1,000 people turned out to shut down the port and have been extremely successful. People are regrouping at West Oakland BART.
Jerry Brown's Office: 510-238-3141 Ask that the police violence stop immediately and that the political prisoners be released.
