Occupy Oakland: Tear Gas, Spray Paint, & Fireworks







Dear Media: you missed this information regarding Oakland | Occupy Los Angeles

Please attempt to help others keep a rational head today. What is being blatantly demonstrated here is how the media will manipulate the message away from the facts, and why. Again, this is a protest and movement against the corporate influence and corruption of the government caused by the few, by reminding everyone of the resulting disaster it has wreaked on the economy and the effects of which the rest of us feel. When that same collection of corporate entities also own the media which ultimately creates the message for the masses, the most true aspects of everything to do with the movement will never be covered, and instead be misrepresented to influence public opinion away from the underlying facts.

Oakland port reopens after night of Occupy protests - CNN.com:

Before dawn, authorities used tear gas on the anti-Wall Street protesters who defied orders to disperse after earlier shutting down the port, police said.
In the violence, a crowd of several hundred people threw rocks and shot fireworks at officers after being asked to leave the scene, prompting officers to fire tear gas, authorities said.
After the port protest, Occupy Oakland demonstrators returned to a city park and nearby streets, where violence broke out.
Hazy video from the scene, posted on the Internet, showed a fire burning and fireworks exploding as at least one protester threw objects.

Some important facts that you will not find in the mainstream (corporate) media today which (completely co-incidentally I'm sure) will be the total polar opposite message we'll hear from the blowhards who only get their information from that corporate owned media bent on misrepresenting this movement:
- None of the "violence" of yesterdays demonstration was planned by, condoned, or in any way sanctioned by the general assembly at Grant Plaza...
...
- Do a Google search for "Oakland Liberation Front" right now. They are a self invented, radicalized, pseudo-anarchist group styled after Black Bloc that attempted to subvert the protests yesterday. They have not been involved in any way with holding space in Grant Park
...
- This is the flyer they were handing out around Grant Park the day before the General Strike

When "Oakland Liberation Front" Black Bloc provocateurs acted against the principles of the actual movement by inciting vandalism during the march, the crowds turned against them: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=rWm2ZJbATHc
