December 12th 2011 west coast shutdown was Occupy's most ambitious political event. It polarized the media, ILWU, the Occupy movement itself, anarchists and social movement unions.
In February 2012 ILWU local 21 accepted a terrible contract after a protracted struggle in Longview, WA, and support from Occupy. Why was this the case? What lessons should we learn from it?
Javier of Advance the Struggle will present the dynamics of the movement, its different competing political tendencies, and an analysis why it lost.
