Occupy Oakland Raid & Rebirth (Again)

Here we go again.  On Sunday, November 13th, we heard rumors that another raid/eviction of Occupy Oakland was imminent.  I joined a group of Peace Monitors, led and organized by local Labor Unions (shout out to UNITE HERE, ILUW and others) and was out in the streets from 2AM to 7:30 AM, and again from 5PM to about 9PM.

Check out what I saw, condensed into 7 minutes.  It includes spotting a sketchy guy looking down on us, a wedding that took place in front of the police line, the eviction, the march to reclaim the plaza, the 1,000 strong GA later that night, and much more.

For more pictures, click HERE for the early morning pics and HERE for the reclamation later that day.
