It will shortly have been five years since tents appeared on Oscar Grant Plaza; almost five years since OPD turned downtown Oakland into a war zone.
Since then farms and Post Offices have been Occupied, freeways, bridges and City Council meetings taken over. Battles have been lost and won, while, arguably, the hurly-burly continues unabated.
Has anything changed?
Come to 'Beyond Occupy - Five Years Hence' on October 8th, to reminisce about the past, debate the present and discuss what the next five years will bring.
Beyond Occupy, at Oscar Grant Plaza (like, where else?) will be an art and photography show with music and speakers, celebrating the 5th anniversary of the Occupy Movement, highlighting its achievements and the work that has continued since the heady days of October and November, 2011.
It has been organized primarily by Kelly Johnson, with aid from many associated with Occupy Oakland and Occupy San Francisco.
