May Day Anti-Capitalist/Oakland 2 Baltimore March, 2015: photos - by Dave Id
May Day in Oakland began with the ILWU shutting down the port of Oakland in a show of support for the Black Lives Matter movement. A large morning march then headed to Oscar Grant plaza for an afternoon rally. Originally, a call-out was made for an evening anti-capitalist march starting at Latham Square, but after Baltimore exploded in protest on the day of Freddie Grey's funeral on April 27, the march was instead called as a solidarity action, Oakland 2 Baltimore. At it's height, marchers ...

The Problem with Development - by Steve Martinot
The Bay Area is being groomed to play the role of a capitol city in the Pacific Rim economy. The real reason that ABAG has told Berkeley and all the other cities in the Bay Area to build new housing units is to enable the personnel of this capitol city industry and finance to move back from the suburbs, to eliminate the time they spend in highway traffic. There is an implicit intensification of high paid white collar labor in that. But ABAG says it is to cut down on highway pollution, by redu...

The Tech Commute Did Not Take Place - by Fireworks
The mainstream media attempted to portray the May 1st blockade of the Oakland tech commute a failure. An article on SFGate.com carried the headline “May Day rally fails to block tech bus in Oakland.” Further below in the same article, the author goes on to write, “When the lone bus pulled up at 7:40 a.m., it stopped across the street from protesters and left before they could assemble. Other buses were either rerouted or cancelled in anticipation of the protest.”

Tech Commute Shut Down at MacArthur BART! - by Invisible Committee
In the the middle of April, 2015, a post went up on indybay.org for an early morning action to block the tech buses at the MacArthur BART station. The date of action was set for May 1st, or International Workers Day. This holiday commemorates the execution of several Chicago anarchists in 1886. These men fought for the eight-hour day, a meager goal that would allow workers to have a little time for themselves. For their efforts, the state sentenced these anarchists to death.

May Day #ShutItDown Communique and Banner Drop Photos! - by Wildcat
In preparation for May Day protests, a determined unionist dropped a banner early this morning reading "May Day #SHUTITDOWN!" at 17th and Broadway. This Banner was intentionally dropped near Latham Square, the site of the 1946 Oakland General Strike, in hopes to revive the tactic. We think it is the most effective tool for working class people to achieve their demands for a living wage, against police violence, and against austerity and gentrification. We hope to shut down the city this May D...
