DEC 12 Boycott Update
Wow. Occupy Anchorage is now on board for the December 12th West Coast Port Shutdown. This means that we now have Occupy Oakland, Occupy LA, Occupy San Diego, Occupy Portland, Occupy Tacoma, Occupy Seattle, Occupy Vancouver, and Occupy Anchorage all working together in a co-ordinated effort that will cause Goldman Sachs and EGT the loss of tens millions in profit at least. We aren't just "protesting". We are taking direct, damaging action in response to attacks on the OWS movement, and in solidarity with Longshoremen and port workers' struggles against these particular companies. This will be the most significant show of power, solidarity, and potential so far in the OWS movement's short history. Be there. But don't just be there, help plan it and build for it. In Oakland, the Port Shutdown Committee meetings are at Oscar Grant Plaza at 5pm on Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Other cities, check with those encampments for details. Let's do it!
