Add comment on:#J28: A Day of Community, a Day of Violence
On January 28th, I attended Occupy Oakland’s Move-In day, with the personal understanding that OPD would attempt to prevent us from occupying a building (an action I believe to be community-focused, and needed, while also illegal). What I did not expect was that I would experience and/or witness, tear gas, rubber bullets and flash grenades used against a primarily non-violent crowd, in full daylight, with no discretion whatsoever.
