March Against the Police State @ 14th and Broadway
Oct 29 @ 8:00 pm – 11:45 pm

statement read:

I want to preface by saying that many of you are new to Occupy Oakland, many of you are white and middle class. This means you have most likely not experienced police violence in the same manner as those who are queer, people of color or poor. As this movement grows, we ask for respect of our lifelong experiences and the recognition that self defense is not violent.

This Saturday evening, nearly a year after the murderous pig Johannes Mehserle was sentenced with a slap on the wrist and just days after police beat, gassed, shot, kidnapped and hospitalized our fellow occupiers, we are calling for a march against the police state.

We encourage everyone to wear black in memory of all those who have been murdered by the police.

In the name of Oscar Grant, Raheim Brown, Kenneth Harding, Charles Hill and our countless martyrs, we will march this Saturday, immediately after the Speak out from 6-8pm.

MARCH AGAINST THE POLICE STATE.

JUSTICE FOR SCOTT OLSEN.

1946 General Strike Presentation @ amphitheater
Oct 31 @ 8:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Now that the General Strike is upon us in just a few days, it is important to try to place this triumphant day in historical context. Immediately after the General Assembly there will be a multimedia presentation on the 1946 General Strike in Oakland CA presented by Gifford Hartman.
(Gifford Hartman has worked as an EFL/ESL teacher for the past 15 years; he has worked in South Korea, Greece and in the Bay Area. He is presently partially unemployed after an unsuccessful 4-day strike at a San Francisco ESL school last March. He currently works part-time in a literacy program in a public library. He has written about class struggle, historically and in the present, and has given presentations about the class war from an internationalist perspective in locations across North America, as well as in Europe and Asia. He is an original member of the Insane Dialectical Posse (IDP) and helped create the Red & Black Collection of council communist, ultra-left, Situationist International, left communist, anti-Bolshevik communist, and class struggle anarchist publications within the Niebyl-Proctor Marxist Library in Oakland.)

General Strike & Mass Day of Action @ Oscar Grant Plaza
Nov 2 – Nov 3 all-day

General Strike Occupy Everything November 2 2011

Below is the proposal passed by the Occupy Oakland General Assembly on Wednesday October 26, 2011 in reclaimed Oscar Grant Plaza. 1607 people voted. 1484 voted in favor of the resolution, 77 abstained and 46 voted against it, passing the proposal at 96.9%. The General Assembly operates on a modified consensus process that passes proposals with 90% in favor and with abstaining votes removed from the final count.

PROPOSAL:

We as fellow occupiers of Oscar Grant Plaza propose that on Wednesday November 2, 2011, we liberate Oakland and shut down the 1%.

We propose a city wide general strike and we propose we invite all students to walk out of school. Instead of workers going to work and students going to school, the people will converge on downtown Oakland to shut down the city.

All banks and corporations should close down for the day or we will march on them.

While we are calling for a general strike, we are also calling for much more. People who organize out of their neighborhoods, schools, community organizations, affinity groups, workplaces and families are encouraged to self organize in a way that allows them to participate in shutting down the city in whatever manner they are comfortable with and capable of.

The whole world is watching Oakland. Let’s show them what is possible.

Huelga General y Dia de Acciones Masivas @ Oscar Grant Plaza
Nov 2 – Nov 3 all-day

Huelga General 2 Noviembre 2011

Abajo está la propuesta aprobada por la Asamblea General de “Ocupa Oakland” el pasado miércoles, 26 de octubre de 2.011 en la reclamada Plaza de Oscar Grant. 1.607 personas votaron: 1.484 a favor de la resolución, 77 se abstuvieron y 46 votaron en contra, con lo que se aprobó la propuesta con el 96,9%. La Asamblea General opera con un proceso de consenso modificado que aprueba propuestas con un 90% a favor donde las abstenciones son eliminadas del recuento final.

PROPUESTA:
Como compañeros para la ocupación de la Plaza Oscar Grant, proponemos que el miércoles 2 de noviembre de 2.011, liberemos Oakland y cerremos el 1% de la ciudad.

Proponemos una huelga general en toda la ciudad y proponemos que invitemos a todos los estudiantes a salir de las universidades. En lugar de que los trabajadores vayan al trabajo y los estudiantes vayan a la universidad, la gente se reunirá en el centro de Oakland para cerrar la ciudad.

Todos los bancos y corporaciones deberán cerrar todo ese día o protestaremos en su contra.

Mientras que reclamamos una huelga general, también reclamamos mucho más. A la gente que organiza fuera de sus vecindarios, escuelas, organizaciones comunitarias, grupos de afinidad, lugares de trabajo y familias les animamos a organizarse a sí mismos de forma que puedan participar en el cierre de la ciudad como quiera que se sientan cómodos y capaces.

El mundo entero está mirando a Oakland. Demostrémosles que es posible.

El consejo de Coordinación de Huelga empezará a reunirse cada día a las 5 de la tarde en La Plaza Oscar Grant antes de la Asamblea General de las 7 de la tarde. Todos los participantes de la huelga están invitados. Permanezcan atentos a las noticias y nos vemos el próximo miércoles.
