Activism: Oakland activists step up 'Occupy' protest

Protesters in Oakland, California are planning to try and shut down the city's port - the fifth-busiest shipping container port in the United States, in what they are calling a general strike on Wednesday.

The protesters are part of the 'Occupy' movement sweeping the world in which people are rallying to stop, amongst other things, corporate greed.
