Victory: Occupy Seattle Shuts Down the Port!



Today, demonstrators picketed and blockaded terminals 18 and 5 at the port of Seattle, the only terminals with ships actively unloading. At both terminals the unions arbitrator decided the longshoremen should not cross our picket line. In other words…

WE SHUT THE PORT OF SEATTLE DOWN!

You can learn more about the day’s event’s from our live blog and about why we did it here.

On a personal note, I’d just like to say how proud of everyone involved here and down the entire coast where shipping was also disrupted in Longview, Portland, Oakland, Los Angeles, Long Beach and San Diego. We are showing the 1% that the 99% are powerful and we are building a movement that will take this planet back.

    Yesterday the high society of Seattle ordered the Mayor to order the Police Chief to pop a few flash-bang grenades, throw a can of tear gas and spray a few drops of pepper spray — all so that when the mainstream majority of Seattle watched the nationwide news, mixed in with their daily does of mainstream brainwash would be the illusion that Occupy Seattle was just “700” angry and hostile rioters hell-bent on destroying our economical recovery.

    Yes but, what will the Seattle rich nobility do for an encore, when next spring their Ponzi scheme called capitalism can no longer fleece the next man more ignorant, because once burned no one is ignorant, when the economy is twice as miserable causing our protests to grow exponential?

    Being on the right side of history, how sweet it is.
