Add comment on:Anti-Imperialist, Anti-Capitalist Hoodie & Hijab March in Oakland, 10/7/12: photos
Directly after the Decolonize the New World 2012 Afghans for Peace rally in Oscar Grant plaza on the 11th anniversary of the war in Afghanistan and Indigenous People's Day (Columbus Day), up to 200 demonstrators marched through downtown Oakland for just under an hour. In the course of the march, while a sound system boomed and anti-war chants rang out, windows were broken, ATMs were smashed, and paint went up. Targets included numerous banks, a credit union, AC Transit, AT&T, the Oakland Tribune, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Sears, the Uptown Apartments, Rudy's Can't Fail, Oakland city hall, Oakland police department Internal Affairs, and more. The tires of one to two dozen relatively high-end vehicles were popped. The march returned to the plaza where it began and demonstrators dispersed of their own accord without confrontations with police or arrests.
