Attn:All Occupiers that have been arrested/charged in Oakland.

The DA is filing charges against Occupiers in some of the cases where charges weren’t filed after arrest – in particular, the Dec. 30 raid. The result is that people are being picked up on warrants, without even knowing charges have been filed. If you’ve been arrested but charges weren’t originally filed – CALL the District Attorney immediately (510 268 7500) to find out if any charges have been filed and if a warrant has been issued. If a warrant has been issued, call the legal hotline (415 285-1011). 16405

Look, you may not like the police but we the people who live in and call these cities home, need the police. Sadly … Continued


circle of solidarity

Howdy. First post here. Id like to propose a March to reach out to the greater Oakland community. I propose a full circle of people around 3 mile lake merritt in the heart of the city. It could allow the movement to stretch out so to speak, and demonstrate our connection to the oakland, the broader community, all ows camps, and the world. It could be combined with a day of speakers, music, events, etc., and culminate with a human circle around lake Merritt. Lets show Oakland and the world … Continued
