OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Port of Oakland has reopened after Wall Street protesters removed a blockade that had shut down operations overnight.

A small group of protesters had prevented trucks from going into the port since a massive demonstration there Wednesday night. They removed the dumpsters and fencing from the entrances around 8:45 a.m.

Port officials say workers are returning to their jobs and operations have partially resumed.
