Voices From Occupy Oakland

Here are a handful of interviews from 10/30 at Occupy Oakland. The scene was very calm, moving and insightful. The first guy held up a sign that read, “The police and hospital put me in this chair and won’t help me now.” The second guy has been here since day 1, and the third joined us while we were waiting for t-shirts. An artist brought a shirt press and black paint as he pressed “Occupy Oakland” in between a clenched fist on hundreds of shirts that people handed over. (I scavenged online to find photos from the Oakland Occupation – the photographers deserve credit, but I don’t know their names…)
