Meeting between the Occupy movement and the dock workers? / Rencontre du mouvement Occupy et des dockers?

Le mouvement Occupy convoque ses partisans à une journée de mobilisation visant à fermer tous les ports du côte ouest des Etats-Unis.  Pour voir l’appel, cliquez ici. Et pour voir la vidéo (tres professionnel) qui annonce la mobilisation, voir ici. La grande question qui se pose évidemment est de savoir si le mouvement, souvent accuse d’être plutôt de classe moyenne, saura batir des ponts avec la classe ouvrière et les syndicats. Il n’est pas du tout clair pour le moment si les dockers appuient ou opposent l’action.

The Occupy movement in the US is calling on its supporters to shut down all the main West Coast ports on December 12th.  to see their call to action, click here.  And to see the (very impressively made) video announcing the action see here. The Occupy movement has often been accused of being middle class.: the question, therefore, is whether it will be able to bridge bridges with the workers and their unions. It’s not clear at the moment whether the dockers support or oppose the action.
