The Occupy Oakland General Assembly stands in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street and all those who were brutalized on March 17, 2012.  Six months after the beginning of the Occupy movement, thugs dressed in blue once more beat, bashed, and stomped on peaceful protesters trying to create a better world. Late at night on the 17th of March in New York City, Cecily McMillan was left convulsing in bonds without being allowed medical attention; just as on October 25th Scott Olsen was shot and left bleeding in the streets of Oakland by those whose motto is “to protect … Continued

Occupy Oakland and other Occupy groups in Alameda County have been subjected to a relentless campaign of suppression and discriminatory application of the law by the Oakland police department, the mayor, the city administrator’s office, and the Alameda County district attorney’s office. This campaign focuses not only on intimidation and terrorizing activists with threats of violence, inordinately long jail stays due to high bails, inflated and inflammatory sentencing such as: lethal use of less than lethal weapons, bails in the 100′s of thousands, criminal and hate crimes charges, stay away orders, … Continued
