Occupy Oakland General Strike - Occupation of Travelers Building, 11/2/11: video
by Dave Id
Monday Nov 14th, 2011 1:24 AM
After a long day of General Strike marches and bank closures throughout downtown, and the shutdown of the Port of Oakland by tens of thousands of demonstrators, the former Travelers Aid Society building on 16th Street, just north of Oscar Grant Plaza, was briefly occupied starting at about 10pm. Banners were hung from the roof on the front and side of the building while books were sorted for what was to be a public library in the "Raheim Brown Community Center" and hundreds of people danced and conversed in the street outside. Shortly before midnight, hundreds of Oakland police in riot gear arrived on 17th Street. In the next hour, the barricade on 16th and Telegraph was set on fire, police dispersed massive amounts of tear gas, and over one hundred people were arrested.
