In this time of political unrest and economic crisis, when our clients and the wider community are suffering from an economic and political system that is not serving their needs, there must be an outlet for the people’s desire to organize and express their views. We at EBCLC support the desires of the Occupy Oakland movement to express their political views as well as the General Strike called for Wednesday, November 2, 2011, in which many members of our organization plan to participate. The opportunity still remains for the City to emerge from the disastrous attempt to repress Occupy Oakland and for the City to serve as a national example of a truly democratic community. It would be a tragedy to miss that opportunity.
