PORT TRUCKERS AND SUPPORTERS WILL BE SHUTTING DOWN AN SSA TERMINAL OF THE PORT! MEETING TOMORROW @ 5 AM - SSA BERTH 57 - 1717 Middle Harbor Road Oakland, CA

These Truckers are subjected to inhumane conditions such as being fined $50 for leaving the trucks, no bathroom breaks, and verbal abuse. Also they are being forced to pay for a $70,000 environmental upgrade that they want but can't afford. They have numerous other demands that you can read about here: http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2013/10/20/18745131.php
There is parking on the Port at 7th and Adeline. Middle harbor park parking lock will be locked until daybreak.
There are carpools from the Northwest corner of West Oakland BART (you can ride the bus there or park for free in the lot). Carpool drivers can be identified by the flashing light on their dashboard when they pull up to pick up riders. They will be driving people from the parking lot directly to the SSA terminal.
Bring banners, picket signs, food, water, and warm clothes.
Be respectful to the Truckers and their wishes!
AFTER THAT WE WILL BE RE-CONVERGING AT 2 PM AT WEST OAKLAND BART FOR THE SOLIDARITY PICKET, POTLUCK, AND ASSEMBLY TO ORGANIZE THE 5 PM
PICKET OF THE SSA TERMINAL
