Occupy Oakland To Begin New Protest This Weekend

Help Occupy Oakland Get Settled into its New Home on January 28

WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?

Occupy Oakland is about people providing for themselves and for others, since it is clear that the system can no longer provide for them. It is a place where people who are fed up can come together and develop new forms of struggle.

Since November, the city of Oakland and its police force have made it impossible for us to meet, to serve food, and to provide a place for people to stay, in our original home at Oscar Grant Plaza.

At the same time, all over the city, thousands of buildings sit empty for the simple reason that they exist to enrich the 1% rather than meet people’s needs for space and shelter.

Occupy Oakland has a demonstrated need for such a space. We have served tens of thousands of meals without charge, provided a place for thousands of people to sleep free from police repression, planned and carried out actions in which tens of thousands of people have participated. Most importantly, unlike a charity, Occupy Oakland provides people with the opportunity to get involved and determine the direction of the movement. It is open to the initiative of everyone.

6. What? Oh, pooh-pooh! People that act contrary to the authority of the status quo are foolish.



Change can only come from within the confines of established ways and rules.

Anything outside of this box can not be effective and could upset the established order.

Dontcha know?

3. I hope they're successful with this.

I wonder who the owner of the building is? I see they haven't said which building, apparently to keep the location secret until they attempt the move-in.

I suspect this will not be well-received by the city or the owner of the building. I hope it goes OK.

5. photo project

...my daughter is doing a photo shoot at occupy this weekend. Part of a larger portrait project taking place all over the world. Hers focuses on occupy oakland, in part to show that the movement is more diverse than shown on msm.
