Seattle Announces Port Shutdown Logistics
Later, there will be two rallies near the port at 3pm and 6pm at the Spokane Street fishing area, just to the east of the Spokane St. bridge, near the intersection of SW Spokane St & SW Manning St. under the West Seattle bridge.
Come to the Spokane St. fishing area anytime after 3pm and Occupy Seattle members will meet you there to show you where to find the port picket lines.
The 125 bus goes to the Spokane St. fishing area from downtown and from West Seattle; get off at Chelan Ave. SW and SW Spokane St. and walk east along the Alki bike path.
Why we are protesting:
Against Gov. Gregoire's devastating budget cuts. It's not too late to stop these cuts that target working class people, people with disabilities, and people of color. The 1% controls the politicians. Let them know that if they cut us, we will cut their profits by shutting down Wall Street on the waterfront.
No union-busting! Solidarity with immigrant port truckers battling Goldman Sachs in LA.
We support the Longview, WA Longshoremen in their struggle against multinational grain cartel EGT.
Against police repression and evictions of occupations. Occupy everything!
Occupy Seattle’s General Assembly voted unanimously to endorse the call to action put out by Occupy Oakland. Port blockades are planned in San Diego, LA, Oakland, Portland, Vancouver, Tacoma, and Seattle.
