Hello Caravaners! Occupy Oakland will be caravaning to Longview, WA to join Occupy Portland, Occupy Seattle, Occupy Olympia, and Occupy Longview to blockade the notorious EGT ship that is busting the Longshoremen’s jurisdiction. EGT is a multinational grain exporter responsible for economic and enviromental devastation around the world. While the date for the arrival of the ship in Longview is uncertain, it is approaching quickly! Here in Oakland, we need to have a preparation meeting to get ready for our caravan. We will be meeting on Sunday, January 22nd, at 410 14th Street (between Broadway and Franklin) at 4:30 PM (after the GA).

In this meeting, we will discuss everything: how we’ll be alerted, how the actual caravan will be organized, who is going with who, where we’ll meet, what to bring (and not bring), what to expect during the day of action in Longview, etc. We will be hosted by Occupy Longview and Occupy Portland who are very excited to take action with Occupy Oakland! Every chance you can get, tell people to sign up or donate on our website: occupytheegt.org. Thanks, see you all on Sunday!

    There is an nonprofit organization, that is on the way to Longview, that has illegally terminated me after 11 years of successful employment. Is there any chance that the caravan could take the Central Weed exit off I-5 and drive through the parking lot at this nonprofit organization, that after terminating me illegally, the nonprofit management and Board of Director’s threatened the remaining staff that if the union won the Arbitration, that someone currently employed would lose their job, in order to get the staff to vote out the SEIU Local 1021 that the staff voted in 2002.
