Add comment on:City of Oakland Serves Notice to Vacate on Occupy Oakland, 10/20/11
At 8pm the city of Oakland delivered numerous copies of a letter demanding that Occupy Oakland vacate Frank Ogawa plaza after 10pm. The General Assembly discussed related issues including interactions with corporate media who have been the source of some problems. For instance, a camera person for a corporate news outlet was sticking his camera into tents without permission, was bitten by a dog, and then called police. A proposal was passed to request that corporate media check in at the Info Tent before they enter the plaza, respect people's privacy, and not record meetings or personal conversations without permission. Should the occupation be evicted tonight, contingencies include reconverging at 2pm Friday in Oscar Grant Plaza for a wedding of Ceasar Chavez's great grand-nephew, who has been supportive of the occupation. If the occupation is raided Friday night, then occupiers would reconverge Saturday, October 22nd for the Occupy Oakland mass rally and march. The last thing said at tonight's GA meeting: "We're not going anywhere!"
