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. Speakers began on time at 4pm sharp as the crowd rapidly swelled in numbers. The audio here includes the full first hour of speakers, alternating between "human mic" and bullhorn, and ends with a call from Occupy Wall Street in support of the Oakland Occupation. A link to photos of many of the speakers can be found below.

This is a really long Ustream video, but it's pretty rewarding to skip through.

Several groups such as Vets for Peace hung various banners around the Hart Senate office building, in a spectacular display
