    Crowd estimated betwteen 5,000 to 10,000. Berkley students marching in support, along with union members and others. Port effectively shut down at this point, entrance blocked. Shift change cannot occur.

    "You're going to like the way you strike."

    From Facebook, an hour ago:

    Men's Wearhouse
    We closed our store near Oakland City Hall today, for one day, to express the company's concern for the issue of wealth disparity in our country. The issue affects our employees and customers across the political spectrum.

    Looks like the cops are outnumbered this time.
    Hope it's a good mix of people, some hippies, black/hispanic/chinese, few healthy veterans in there too.

    Looking a lot more like the 99 percent to me.

    Great job, Oakland.

    Reminds me of the end of the apartheid movement in South Africa, it began like this, and got bigger...

    LOL @ the doubters. This is it guys. This is the beginning of something that's been long overdue.

    Higher-profile news on CNN than #OccupyOakland: Paris Hilton, Iranian soccer, and a monkey getting a root canal. America kind of sucks.

    Sadly, businesses will not take a loss, but will adjust prices which will be paid by the community.

    It's great when the mass media hides the truth, because it makes the general public mad enough to look for alternative news sources.

    And that is when they wake up.

    Good, everything is going according to plan. The effectiveness of shutting down the port is great, I bet some people will be mad about it.

    I saw that some people, who don't represent the movement, went off in the city. Peaceful protestors will prevail, for while anyway.
