On the first day of Occupy Oakland, nearly 1000 people gathered at Frank Ogawa plaza at 14th & Broadway, now dubbed "Oscar Grant Plaza" by occupiers. Around 50 tents went up into the night, including one by Oakland city council member Desley Brooks, as occupiers danced to songs bumping out from an amplified sound system. Oakland police tried to come in and have the music turned off, but were immediately met with chants of "get out!" and "pigs go home!" No further police presence was seen near the occupation during the night. These photos are a continuation of the series begun at http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2011/10/11/18693142.php
