#Occupy Oakland’s General Strike Video: Massive Solidarity March


#Occupy Oakland’s Nov. 2 General Strike occurred on last Wednesday. It was a most auspicious day, with Oakland’s infamous diverse population gathered in unity to support a Peoples‘ march and rally on behalf of enacting a true occupation. Some of those marching came with groups, organizations, family, friends, co-workers, alone, but they came. It was an awe-inspiring sight and experience. I marched with Angela Davis. She was bombarded with people who knew her place in the Movement was iconoclastic. She didn’t feel that way at all. She was thrilled to see the people united and empowered to provoke, inspire, motivate and march for change.

Let the world see the spectacular example of a city unified in Solidarity. Look at the number of people who walked and protested peacefully and powerfully. The violence only served to make folks think the overall Strike was a fiasco. NO! It wasn’t! There were over 50,000+ marchers! They were marching to close down Oakland’s Port, and they did!  This was my experience, People Empowered to Stand in Unity! POWER TO THE PEOPLE!
