A march to the #PortofOakland with #OccupyOakland
Overall #OccupyOakland’s general strike turned out to be a peaceful event, lasting all day and into the night this Wednesday. I have just returned from the port where protestors have successfully closed the Port of Oakland until 7am tomorrow. I will have more detailed and accurate information tomorrow.
The only black eye for today’s protest was the raid by an anarchist group, dressed in all black that smashed bank windows, tagged bank signs and building walls and also threw chairs and tables around at a Whole Foods. You can watch them raiding in this video. I highly recommend you click that bold text and watch the video, it is quite unreal, reminds me of a scene from a Batman film.
Here are a few other raw images I shot while marching down Broadway and into the port:
