Occupy Oakland!

Just when I was starting to feel bogged down by the Occupy San Francisco movement – along comes Oakland!  I live in Oakland so I was just waiting for this happen.  Yesterday about 800 people gathered out front of city hall on Oscar Grant Plaza (formerly known as Frank Ogawa Plaza).  They are already many times more organized than SF and the occupation is only a day and half old.

Check out the poster!

i love it.

So, I’ll probably be devoting more of my time to Occupy Oakland now.  I’ve already met a bunch of beautiful people and the spirit is quite lively.  Native American drummers pounding and singing.  Second Line drummers marching through the plaza.  Tons of tents.  Free Food.  More Free People.  It’s a blast so far.
