Occupy Oakland shuts down port

After a day of struggle by Occupy Oakland that closed some major downtown banks, 10,000 to 20,000 demonstrators marched on this northern California city's huge and usually busy seaport on the evening of Nov. 2. They brought work to a halt as longshore workers refused to cross the mass picket line. Seen here is the front banner on the march, which read "General Strike." The Occupy Wall Street movement continues in hundreds of other U.S. cities despite threats that officials and police are preparing actions to break up their encampments.
