6 AM to 8 PM

Tomorrow morning, as an act of unity with the Indigenous People’s Sunrise Gathering on Alcatraz Island, Occupy Oakland will be broadcasting the Sunrise Ceremony at Oscar Grant Plaza.

We will be assembling a community altar space beginning in the early morning and continuing throughout the day. All are invited to bring sacred objects to share. In particular, we’re requesting sage, copal, objects symbolizing the 4 directions, images of indigenous resistance, and images of indigenous life before conquest.

The community is also invited to bring breakfast and warm drinks to share with one another after the Sunrise Ceremony is broadcast.

From noon until 5, Terrance Nelson, Clyde Bellecourt, Oglala Vice President Tom Poor Bear and many other will be joining us for a series of speeches, performances and a mid-day feast.

Immediately following, the community will gather for Grateful Mic: Music and Words of Gratitude and Solidarity from the Oakland Community.
