I am proud to support Occupy Oakland and to participate in the November 2 General Strike !
I am the 99%.
And I am also against police brutality and marched with Oakland following the unjustified violence used against unarmed citizens exercising their rights. We are not seeking war with the police. We want them to treat us better, not worse. We had tense encounters with the police, sometimes wearing gas masks and wielding clubs. This march was peaceful, and ended when we were done walking our streets. No riots, no mass arrests. Well done Oakland !
A nice lady saw me without a mask, and pulled me aside while she ran inside to get one for me. This is the crowd walking on by.
