"It's double-edged," said David S. Meyer, a sociology professor at the University of California, Irvine. "It means you have people trying lots of different things and somebody can come up with something really clever. But it also means it's harder to brand and make sense of." While Oakland, in particular, has a long history of using port shutdowns to send a political message, that approach doesn't necessarily resonate as strongly elsewhere, Mr. Meyer said.
