USA Occupy Protesters Block Ports

A man is arrested by Long Beach Police Department officers after protestors blocked the road leading to SSA Marine, a shipping company partially owned by investment bank Goldman Sachs at the Port of Long Beach on December 12, 2011, in Long Beach, California. Following a general strike coordinated by Occupy Oakland that closed the Oakland, California, port on November 2, hundreds are expected to try to shut down all West Coast ports as Occupy movements in Los Angeles, San Diego, Oakland, Seattle, Portland, Oregon, and Tacoma, Washington, have joined the effort.
