Police Brutality in Oakland


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.



  1. I don´t know to post here, please check this information.


    As you have been informed, we have prepared the structure of the forum which will be held this winter and gathered information and ideas about what a new 21st century globally revolutionized society could look like. TELL EVERYONE!

    *The future is now.* *In search of a new society* *What do you have to say?*

    We invite you to participate as a speaker in this forum which will take place in Puerta del Sol, Madrid around the middle of December. It will be an open space for scientists, engineers, philosophers and others who would like to participate in the rich experience of collective thought and lateral thinking. We are looking for a large enough covered space in Puerta del Sol for a fortnight in December.

    The structure of the forum will be as follows:

    · Presentation time: 20 minutes
    · Questions and Answers (Q&A): 10 minutes
    · Debate time: 30 minutes

    We understand that the basic unit of society is the human being. For this reason, the forum will revolve around three main topics:

    · The human being: mind, emotions, creativity, health and spirituality.
    · Human beings and their environment: society, knowledge, culture,technology, sustainable economy, ecosystem. Rural and urban settings (unification of two worlds).
    · Human beings and the universe. Nanorreality (particle physics), global ecosystem, outer space.

    This event is being organized by the working group Systems Building, a sub-group of the 15M Barrio del Pilar neighbourhood assembly.

    Our goal is to unify our efforts in order to extend this activity so that it reaches all sectors of the 15M movement and endows the movement with the knowledge and strategies necessary to improve our current condition.
