Occupy Wall Street protesters say they'll try to shut down ports along the West Coast from San Diego to Alaska today as a statement of solidarity with longshoremen, port workers and truckers. But the International Longshore and Warehouse Union says any actions and "decisions made by groups outside of the union's democratic process are not valid, regardless of intent."
