Add comment on:Occupy Oakland Egypt Solidarity March, 11/12/11: Video
Recognizing that Egyptians, in many ways the inspiration for the current Occupy Wall Street movement, marched in solidarity with Occupy Oakland after the police raid and attacks at Oscar Grant Plaza on October 25th, Occupy Oakland's General Assembly returned the favor by calling for a march on November 12th and releasing a statement in solidarity with Egypt. When the march stopped in front of the North County/Glenn Dyer jail on 7th Street, speakers addressed the issue of political prisoners worldwide, the Egyptian revolution, and the jailing of Alaa Abd El-Fatah by the Egyptian military just days after he had marched with Occupy Oakland on October 26th.
