Proposal for a Coordinated West Coast Port Shutdown, Passed With Unanimous Consensus by vote of the Occupy Oakland General Assembly 11/18/2012:

In response to coordinated attacks on the occupations and attacks on workers across the nation:

Occupy Oakland calls for the blockade and disruption of the economic apparatus of the 1% with a coordinated shutdown of ports on the entire West Coast on December 12th. The 1% has disrupted the lives of longshoremen and port truckers and the workers who create their wealth, just as coordinated nationwide police attacks have turned our cities into battlegrounds in an effort to disrupt our Occupy movement.

We call on each West Coast occupation to organize a mass mobilization to shut down its local port. Our eyes are on the continued union-busting and attacks on organized labor, in particular the rupture of Longshoremen jurisdiction in Longview Washington by the EGT. Already, Occupy Los Angeles has passed a resolution to carry out a port action on the Port Of Los Angeles on December 12th, to shut down SSA terminals, which are owned by Goldman Sachs.

Occupy Oakland expands this call to the entire West Coast, and calls for continuing solidarity with the Longshoremen in Longview Washington in their ongoing struggle against the EGT. The EGT is an international grain exporter led by Bunge LTD, a company constituted of 1% bankers whose practices have ruined the lives of the working class all over the world, from Argentina to the West Coast of the US. During the November 2nd General Strike, tens of thousands shutdown the Port Of Oakland as a warning shot to EGT to stop its attacks on Longview. Since the EGT has disregarded this message, and continues to attack the Longshoremen at Longview, we will now shut down ports along the entire West Coast.

Participating occupations are asked to ensure that during the port shutdowns the local arbitrator rules in favor of longshoremen not crossing community picket lines in order to avoid recriminations against them. Should there be any retaliation against any workers as a result of their honoring pickets or supporting our port actions, additional solidarity actions should be prepared. In the event of police repression of any of the mobilizations, shutdown actions may be extended to multiple days.

In Solidarity and Struggle,

Occupy Oakland

- In Oakland: the West Coast Port Shutdown Coordinating Committee will meet on General Assembly days at 5pm before the GA to organize the local shutdown, and to network with other occupations.

When you have set up your Local Occupation, please post your details here for everyone to connect with.  If there already is an Occupation established, please join them and join forces.  There are hundreds and thousands not on this list yet.  

Please Register your Occupation and your contact information here:

Here is some information from Occupy Wall Street (the mother ship) for everyone, everywhere:

TRANSLATORS NEEDED (Occupy Together dot org)
We desperately need translations into these languages: MANDARIN, ARABIC,FARSI,JAVANESE,PANJABI,URDU,FRANCAIS,TELUGU, VIETNAMESE,ESPANOL,RUSSIAN,PORTUGUES, ENGLISH (if not existing), JAPANESE, SWAHILI, HAUSA, AMHARIC, YORUBA, KURDISH,LINGALA, AFRIKAANS,and many others!! If you can help us, please contact us!!

This list will be updated at times, but you can not count on that. This list was made in this space on November 5th, 2011.  At this point, thousands of groups will start daily, and you are on your own to find the one near you, or start your own now.  People are forming Meetups, Facebook Groups, Facebook Pages, as well as Creating Facebook Events.  Go for it!

If your Occupation is not on this list yet, you can try to send me an email and I will try to post them as they come in.  But I already have no time, so no promises personally. Please from your own communications group for your Occupation and task them to maintain your group’s contact information in the crowd-sourced “Occupy Together Directory”.  Thank you.

If you go this far, and you are one of us, please search your area and join with the others who may have already established your local Occupation.  If that is done, help recruit others to join in locally as well. If there is no Occupation where you are now, then you are the first person to take action, so please do, and join us all as we join in this coordinated action globally as citizens of planet earth.  

Together we can stop the wars.  Together we can heal the world.

This is what democracy looks like.
