Occupy Oakland General Strike - Shutdown of the Port of Oakland, 11/2/11: photos, 2 of 2

In the largest action of the day during the Occupy Oakland General Strike on November 2nd, tens of thousands of people gathered at 14th & Broadway and marched to the Oakland Port to blockade gates in two waves and forced the fifth largest port in the United States to close for the evening shift. Thousands of demonstrators remained at the port for five hours, until word came that the labor arbitrator had ruled that dock workers did not have to cross picket lines and would not be penalized with pay forfeiture for that shift. These photos are a continuation of the series begun at http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2011/11/10/18698661.php.
