You all heard the troubles in Oakland yesterday when Occupy Oakland set out to occupy a vacant building with community (no? See here and here. 300 arrests, flash grenades, bean bag rounds, and more.) Today, across the nation, Occupy will march in solidarity – inter-occupy solidarity.
Solidarity with Oakland
Yesterday, Occupy Oakland moved to convert a vacant building into a community center to provide education, medical, and housing services for the 99%. Police responded with tear gas, rubber bullets, beanbag rounds and mass arrests. The State has compounded its policy of callous indifference with a ruthless display of violent repression.
The Occupy movement will respond, as we have always responded: With an overwhelming show of collective resistance.
Today, we take to the streets. Across the country, we will demonstrate our resolve to overcome repression and to continue to build a better world grounded in love and solidarity for one another.
All eyes on all Occupies.
