In memory of two Occupy comrades who were murdered in the past week, Tsega Tsegay and Alex Mahan, Coffee Not Cops served up free coffee this morning at Oscar Grant Plaza.

In recent weeks, Coffee Not Cops has had several servings around downtown Oakland, including the courthouse, serving up hot coffee and pastries to passersby and greeting law enforcement with a "Fuck The Police" banner as they arrive to work.

The City of Oakland just can't seem to get its head around free speech.

The banner was quickly re-hung as the boombox blared and coffee continued to pour.
