Protestors escalated their tactics beyond tent camps. Today, Occupy Oakland moved to disrupt the flow of goods at the nation's fifth-busiest port — a major entry point for Chinese goods. An estimated 10,000 protesters flooded the area, forcing management to shut down operations for the night. The gathering at the port is the culmination of a day of protests they deemed a general strike.

Thousands marched from downtown Oakland to the port on Wednesday.
