Occupy Oakland AssaultedJuxtapoz // Tuesday, 25 Oct 2011
It took 200 cops in riot gear to disperse the Occupy Oakland protests at Frank Ogawa Plaza near Oakland City Hall early this morning. Parroting the usual lines about "unsanitary" and "unsafe" conditions, a bunch of armored men with guns rushed a peaceful encampment and proceeded to brutalize the protesters. More photos here. Solidarity marches in far off cities like Boston have been scheduled, and an Occupy Oakland response gathering has been scheduled for the Oakland Public Library at 4PM PST.
