Occupy rally shuts down shipping port indefinitely

Tents are pitched by the Occupy Oakland movement outside Oakland's City Hall on Tuesday in Oakland, Calif. Oakland is bracing for Wednesday's citywide general strike, a hastily planned and ambitious action called by Occupy protesters a day after police forcibly removed their City Hall encampment last week. The union representing Oakland's police officers, who had a violent clash with Occupy Wall Street protesters last week, has written an open letter to residents, pointing out that the officers are also part of "the 99 percent."
