Reblogged from Occupied Oakland Tribune

March 17, 2012

It was a day-long festival in Zuccotti Park / Liberty Square today in New York City yesterday, 3/17/12. Occupiers re-occupied the park, celebrating the six-month anniversary of Occupy Wall Street’s founding. A large number of people stayed in Zuccotti for the evening, but about 11:30 PM were ordered out and were beaten by NYPD…

A different kind of Park Occupation took place in Oakland, CA the same day. Some three hundred Occupy Oaklanders and Oakland residents got together and held a barbeque / speakout / talk-fest at Arroyo Park in East Oakland this afternoon…


You probably won’t read anything about the Oakland event anywhere but here. Of course, that’s because there were no arrests. No shields. No tear gas. No violence. That’s for one very good reason: no police. Just a bunch of happy campers gourmands stuffing their faces with incredible bbq-ed chicken and awesome deserts, talking shit is fucked up and stuff…

You’d almost think that, for today, Oakland was New York, and New York was Oakland.

Read the much more detailed original article at Daily Kos, posted as the beatings in NYC were happening, complete with tweets about the police brutality as it was happening.
