For the record, I don’t agree with the burning of the American flag, I thought that was wrong, and I am sure that many of the Occupy Oakland protesters thought the same. There was even another protester begging them not to. I do however support the overall movement to fight income inequality, corportism, injustices, and the fight for Internet freedom and human rights.
Follow Occupy Oakland News:
Wikipedia: Occupy Oakland History, however always double check information for accuracy, but it will give you an overall view of the movement, and everything that has occured.
Occupy Oakland Headlines across various news organizations
LA Times: Occupy Oakland: Police arrest 300, officials decry ‘illegal activity’ "Police in riot gear faced off with demonstrators Saturday afternoon at a rally near City Hall. Hundreds of protesters then marched toward the vacant Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center, where they began tearing down the fencing around the auditorium, and police moved to stop them."
CNN: Dozens arrested as Oakland, occupy protesters clash "From the beginning, the group acknowledged on its website that the action — touted on its website as "Move-In Day" — to take over the convention center was illegal.
But the group said the move was necessary, in part because “since November, the city of Oakland and its police force have made it impossible for us to meet, to serve food and to provide a place for people to stay.” “
Oakland Tribune: Day of clashes at Occupy Oakland ends with at least 400 arrest "Occupy Oakland protesters broke into City Hall, stole an American flag from the City Council chamber and set it on fire Saturday night, punctuating a wild day in which police deployed tear gas, arrested more than 400 marchers and dodged hurling objects.”
Huffington Post: Occupy Oakland: Police Teargas Protests, use flash grenades “Police used tear gas and “flash” grenades on the group Saturday afternoon after some demonstrators threw rocks and other objects at them. Police said three officers were hurt, but they released no details.”
RT News: Occupy Oakland video: Police use flashbags & tear-gas against protesters ”Police in Oakland, California, have used tear-gas and flash-grenades as a 2,000-strong Occupy Oakland march turned violent, with some protesters claiming that rubber bullets were also fired into the crowd. At least 300 people were arrested.
The demonstrators had attempted to take over vacant buildings to use as their headquarters, they also broke into City Hall and tried to occupy a YMCA. Police spokesman Jeff Thomason told media most of the arrests came around 8 pm local time. Police took many protesters into custody as they marched through the city’s downtown area, with some entering a YMCA building.”

OWS is against inequalities in the US system, and corruption, imperialism, and corportism.
America’s anti-corporate Occupy protesters are starting the year as they mean to go on - digging in with their demos, as they clock up 4 months of the campaign. Thousands are due outside Congress later on Tuesday - hoping their demands won’t fall on deaf ears, as representatives reconvene after the holidays. RT’s Gayane Chichakyan is in Washington.

From Uptake Video: The Occupy movement has successfully put the economic injustice plaguing the United States on televisions across America, says Tina Dupuy, a nationally syndicated op-ed columnist and managing editor of Crooks and Liars.
The reason that most Americans were unaware of these issues before the Occupy movement caught fire this fall is that 60 percent of us get our news exclusively from local news sources. Those 30-minute local news segments devote a full 10 minutes to commercials and two minutes to “teasers” of stories to come. That leaves very little time for real news about real issues.
Dupuy says that newscasters too often fill the gap with trivial stories such as reports about “Dancing with the Stars” or news of a cat stuck in a tree in Germany. “We don’t have a real broad knowledge of issues that affect us, like the housing bubble or about what our local and national government is doing,” says Dupuy. “But at least now the local news is showing protest signs of what economic injustice is.
They’re being forced to cover these issues and cover the raids, arrests and encampments and have the protestors on television talking about these issues.” “Now we’ve seen our local news talk about the homeless population, talk about people who aren’t able to find jobs, talk about students who are now sharecroppers to banks because they have $200,000 in student loan debt ? debt they can’t renegotiate.”

To see more interesting stuff please visit http://factspy.netIn our world, jobless, economic disparity and corruption are major issues but what are the facts? This video helps explain some of the statistics behind the protests. In 2007, unemployment was 4.5%. In 2010, it was 9.7%. (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics). Include those who are underemployed or stopped looking? 18%This is a huge factor is our world today!Bill O’reilly even said, “They’re jobless because they don’t want to work!” . I’ll stop you there Bill! In some cases I can agree but there are people who are trying to look for work and they can not get any because they need experience. How can anyone gain experience if no one will offer you the position? Bill O’Reilly’s yearly salary could employ a 100 minimum wage workers for over 100 years.Apparently, all you have to do is take a shower and you will be sure to get a job.
Watch here. Please help to spread this informative video around.
