Occupy Oakland’s first encampment launched on October 10th, 2011 in front of City Hall at 14th and Broadway in downtown Oakland. Since then it has evolved into a group of committees and caucuses, and General Assemblies that meet twice a week, on Wednesdays at 6:00 PM at 14th and Broadway, and on Sundays at 2:00 PM at 19th and Telegraph.
We are reclaiming public space to use as a forum for the people to come together, meet one another, listen to each other, and build power for ourselves. Occupy Oakland is more than just a speak out or a camp out. The purpose of our gathering is to plan actions, mobilize real resistance, and defend ourselves from the economic and physical war that is being waged against our communities.
