The Oct. 25 raid on Occupy Oakland, which included an Oakland officer shooting and injuring Iraq War veteran Scott Olsen with a beanbag, generated more internal affairs complaints than any incident in city history, according to a report last month from City Administrator Deanna Santana. The department's effort to complete the Occupy complaint cases was hindered by the fact that several officers in internal affairs, including the unit's former leader, participated in the Oct 25th raid. ↘

Sit-in at Lakeview elementary raided, free classes continue, rally at 5pm

sit-in at Oakland’s Lakeview Elementary School ended early this morning as police from the Oakland School Police force entered the school building, making two arrests.

The dispersal was calm by all accounts, although protesters say that officers threatened to use chemical weapons to disperse the crowd, which included young children. (more)

excellent video here about why the school was occupied -featuring joel (activist, parent and former student), who was one of the two arrested this morning. help stop school closures in oakland and across the country!!!

Occupy Austin Guerrilla Gardeners make one new public garden every week.  Some have been destroyed the city, others remain and are sprouting vegetables.  We have had run ins with park staff who are confounded by our activities and threaten us with police who never show up. 

We do this to make people rethink notions of food, of where it comes from, of who produces it.  We do this to make people rethink the use of space and the concept of property.  We do this to make people rethink the concept of labor versus employment.  We do this so you will do it to.
