“the commons is back”
FROM A COMRADE
the process of doing a human mic can feel like, “a way of feeling words move within you, to make others’ words inhabit your own vocal chords and nervous system.”
Hear, hear! FYI all (or most) of the issues of the Oscar Grant Plaza Gazette are online, at occupyoakland.org, under
Open Forum: Reflections…probably will be more clear soon on the web. We’re working on it. Spanish version of the Gazette coming any day now, and past issues will be archived/posted in Spanish! Sorry for today’s issue’s ugliness…it’s a copy shop.
• Also lots of voices speaking to this: people taking action to create a secure space in camp – the women, queer and transgender camp. People encouraged to bring their tents, over to this safe space.
•October is Black Panther Party History Month.

We are all an essential part of the movement….We are the 99% !!!!!
Spoken with love and urgency,…
SEEN IN THE WALL STREET JOURNAL:
“The world’s millionaires and billionaires now control 38.5% of the world’s wealth.”
