Sometimes words are worth a thousand pictures. See the commentary at http://www.indybay.org/news/2004/01/1669241_comment.php for a much better idea of what was going on, and what is and has been going on with the strike.

OAKLAND -- A noisy, enthusiastic rally supporting 70,000 retail clerks on strike against Southern California supermarkets drew nearly 500 marchers Saturday afternoon and ended in the arrest of 13 demonstrators including Oakland City Council President Ignacio De La Fuente.
..
The sit-in outside the store was in some ways purely symbolic. Those arrested chose to be, while hundreds of others looked on. There were no serious confrontations and no violence, Oakland police Lt. Dave Kosicki said. Each person arrested was cited for two misdemeanors, refusing to disperse and blocking the entrance. They later were released.

Others arrested included Alameda County Central Labor Council executive secretary Judy Goff, Teamsters Local 70 executive Chuck Mack, and the Rev. Carol Been of Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice.
