Occupy movements urged to shut down major ports

Posted on: December 2, 2011

Once again, Van Jones is stirring up the pot. He sent out a message on Twitter linking to a story about a planned blockade. He is calling on occupiers around the country to converge on major sea ports on December 12th in an effort to disrupt commerce.

Local Occupy movements in San Diego, L.A., and Oakland – where protests shut down the port for 24 hours last month – Portland, Tacoma and Seattle will support the Dec. 12 day of action, they said. Farther north, protesters in the Canadian port city of Vancouver and in Anchorage, Alaska, will also “join the economic blockade and disruption of the one per cent,” they said, referring to the wealth-owning elite

“We’re shutting down these ports because of the union busting and attacks on the working class by the one per cent,” said Barucha Peller of the West Coast Port Blockade Assembly, of Occupy Oakland, in a statement targeted by the “99 per cent” protesters.

“We are also striking back against the nationally coordinated attack on the Occupy movement. In response to the police violence and camp evictions against the Occupy movement, this is our coordinated response against the one per cent. She further said, “On Dec. 12th we will show are collective power through pinpointed economic blockade of the one per cent.”

Sounds like anarchy to me. Also when did communism become tolerated in America? As for Van Jones when did inciting violence not become treason in this country? This should be a punishable offense for him and the Occupiers as well.

Right out of Saul Allinsky’s handbook. Why are not more conservatives screaming?
