This morning at 5am over 500 police in riot gear from cities all over
central California brutally attacked the Occupy Oakland encampment at
14th & Broadway. The police attacked the peaceful protest with flash
grenades, tear gas, and rubber bullets after moving in with armored
vehicles. Apparently the media was not allowed in to document this
repression, and the police established barricades as far apart as 11th
and 17th. Over 70 people were arrested and the camp gear was destroyed
and/or stolen by the riot police.
People will reconvene today at 4pm at the Oakland Library on 14th & Madison.
