6:45am: KPFA reports about 1,000 protesters, split in two groups at different entrances, Port of Oakland appears to be effectively shut down, since truckers are not expected to come to work this morning, although the Independent Arbitrator has yet to arrive to officially declare it an “unsafe” situation (i.e. picket line that truckers will not cross).
OakFoSho reported in the ustream above that Alameda County Sheriff deputies came out swinging this morning, clubbing a few people, totally unnecessary since there was no intention to actually enter the port, just block it.

UPDATE: Due to reports of Police Violence , Oakland port shutdown has been extended to 3am shift change in solidarity with the sites victimized by police.
[Note: West Coast Port Shutdown’s site lists 50 Occupies participating.]
