Longview Strikers Plan to #Occupy EGT and Shut Down West Coast Ports

As class conflict increases around the globe, here in Cascadia the striking Longveiw, Washington port workers and their supporters are planning an occupation of EGT’s grain terminal.

In addition to bussing and flying to Longview, all of the West Coast longshoremen will shut down the ports for the entire coast in solidarity. The #occupation is planned for when the next ship arrives, so follow the twitter. When that ship sails in we will have to move quickly, strategically, purposely and with an unrelenting fury.

This occupation of the EGT grain terminal is influenced partially by direct anarchist input and influence on the social and cultural terrain, as well as by the burgeoning #occupymovement happening around North America. But in comparison to the other occupy sites springing up around the country; this is an occupation of an entirely different sort. #Occupying a port to stop the flow of capital into a multinational grain terminal to cause the corporation direct economic damage, whilst simultaneously shutting down the flow of commerce through the ports on the entire west coast of the USA in solidarity with a growing anti-capitalist/anti-authoritarian movement rooted in local non-hierarchical open assemblies, such is happening in Longview and the US right now. Don’t let it pass you by.
