Occupy Wall Street protesters have shut down operations for the day at one of the nation’s busiest shipping ports.
Port of Oakland officials said in a statement late Wednesday that the peaceful rally attended by thousands of demonstrators forced them to cancel typical evening maritime activity. Officials at the nation’s fifth-largest shipping port say they hope the work day can resume Thursday.

Meanwhile, protesters left the port declaring victory with the nearly 5-hour rally that highlighted a daylong “general strike” in Oakland that prompted solidarity demonstrations across the nation.
Shutting down operations at a one the nation’s busiest shipping ports is victory? Success is hindering the flow of goods and keeping people from working.
Sounds like someone is delighting in sabotaging our nation’s economy.
