Thousands of Occupy protesters shut down operations at Oakland port
OAKLAND, Calif. Occupy Wall Street protesters declared victory after thousands of demonstrators shut down one of the nation's busiest shipping ports late Wednesday, escalating a movement whose tactics had largely been limited to marches, rallies and tent encampments since it began in September.
As a voice over a bullhorn said The night is not over, yet, protest organizers told demonstrators to head back to the downtown plaza where the Oakland movement has been based for more than a month.
At the Occupy encampment across the street from City Hall, which also was the scene of intense clashes with authorities last week, the protesters started a large bonfire in the middle of a street, leading to a confrontation with the police.
