One year ago Oakland marched for Oscar Grant after he was killed by BART cops. We will have a moment of silence for him today.
OWS took back Zuccotti Park for part of the night New Years. A family brought a tent in and set it up inside the park. The cops wouldn’t allow anyone inside the park until the tent was taken down. As soon as the cops took the tent, over a thousand people entered the park at 9pm, took down the barricades, stacked them in the middle of the park, and planted a sign through them. Tim Cast on Ustream has footage.
Occupy and Huff were in this year’s DIY parade. Marchers dressed in all white to form a “white block” and carried a tent painted with information about the deaths of the homeless as a memorial. Occupy’s street theater group also performed a skit “The Bankster Who Stole Christmas” The parade was on the news and freakradio.org.
