Riseup, a Worthwhile Cause to Support


Since the early days of our movement, the Web Committee and many others in Occupy Oakland have received valuable free services from the activist collective at Riseup.net.

Our site is in need of more (and more timely) content, in order to reflect the events and issues of the Occupy Oakland community. On the other hand, we have seen a rise in spam posts.
