    that don't want to be out in the streets demonstrating could just stay home from work that day.  

    There are a lot of people out there that would lose their job for doing it - as employers would be perfectly aware of what the day represents.  Occupy isn't quiet about it.  But, if enough folks blockade like the port shutdowns, some of those folks could get the day off and not get in trouble for it.
