16 police agencies attacked Occupy Oakland on October 25, 2011 around 4 a .m., arresting some 105 people, with 600 riot cops using tear gas, bean bags, flash grenades, tank-like police trucks, helicopters wasting oil and causing terrible noise all on peaceful people sitting and sleeping on the ground, exercising their First Amendment rights in a clean, safe environment. Please call the Alameda County district attorney to demand that the charges be dropped: (510) 272-6222, (510) 268-7500
We paid for the following agencies which attacked Occupy Oakland all of which claim to have a budget crisis: 1. Oakland PD, 2 Alameda Sheriff, 3. Berkeley PD 4. University of California PD 5. Hayward PD, 6. Fremont PD., 7. San Leandro PD., 8. Pleasanton PD, 9. Emeryville PD., 10. Newark PD., 11. Solano Cty-Vacaville police, 12. Alameda PD 13. Cal Highway Patrol 14. Santa Clara Sheriffs 15. San Francisco Sheriffs 16. San Jose Police

This information was heard on KPFA, 94.1 FM, at 4 p.m. on Hard Knock Radio, with the police spokesperson listing his fellow thugs at about 4:30 p.m. on this hour long show, which can be heard at

This excellent coverage was continued on KPFA, 94.1 FM at 5 p.m. for 1 hour on Flashpoints, which can be heard at

KPFA needs your help now to avoid cutbacks. Its goal for the current fundraiser is $800,000 to pay for the next few months of our listener-supported, non-commercial radio. It has raised $650,000 so far. October 26, 2011 is the last day for the fundraiser during which they must raise $150,000. It can be done if you help. You can pledge now online and obtain many of the thank you gifts, at:

You will also learn on the Hard Knock radio program that hundreds of hungry people were being served donated food by donated labor in sanitary conditions for 18 hours a day at Occupy Oakland. They should get the Nobel Peace Prize for such an effort!

Some 105 Occupy Oakland people are sitting in jail until Thursday morning when they will be arraigned, including people with broken bones from the police violence. Please call the Alameda County district attorney to demand that the charges be dropped: (510) 272-6222, (510) 268-7500

This was done by the Democratic Mayor Jean Quan's administration, which is yet another reason why you should never vote Democrat or Republican for any office. Always vote either Peace & Freedom or Green. See
