I found out through a friend about some arrests up in Oakland I wasn't very familiar with. So tonight I looked up the charges and the case and was disgusted. Three of Occupy Oaklands occupiers were accused of theft, and jailed on $100,000 bond. One is still in and could not be bailed out. Oakland has started a letter wiring campaign to him to keep his spirits up, and I think it would be nice if we joined in.
We heard about Occupy Oakland's Move-In Day and read about their plans to occupy space and convert it into a community center. I was excited to participate in their actions, for both the learning experience and as a way to start connecting better with other occupations. In reference to Occupy Oakland, we are one and the same movement. We are all occupiers. We are brothers and sisters. And solidarity sees no regional difference.
