Occupy Movement Targets West Coast Ports

The Occupy movement says it will sponsor demonstrations at several coastal port facilities, with the intention being to shut down all of the major gateways.

The Journal of Commerce reports that demonstrators will be allowed to express their views as long as they do not interfere with port traffic. Port of Long Beach spokesman Art Wong said they must confine their picketing to areas that are safely separated from truck traffic and construction zones.

There is so much construction going on at the port, and Mondays are usually busy days in the harbor, so demonstrations would be even more burdensome to port operations, Wong says.
