Liberate Oakland, Shut Down the 1% GENERAL STRIKE & MASS DAY OF ACTION Wednesday November 2, 2011
In places where the weather has already turned wintry, protester attendance has dwindling, giving Occupy Wall Street protesters in New York good reason to worry about how cold weather may mute their movement. There's already a growing concern among Occupy Wall Streeters in New York (and the hope of the less supportive Mayor Bloomberg ) that the coming winter will bring an end to the outdoor encampment.
Last night, I gazed in horror at my computer as I watched cops fire flashbang bombs, rubber bullets, and tear gas upon peaceful protestors at Occupy Oakland. I couldn't help but think how the police response, or perhaps better said attack, resembled a war zone. Photographs show several military personnel at the action, and for those who had served time in Iraq and Afghanistan, and especially those with PTSD, the experience must have been a horrific reminder of the atrocities they witnessed abroad. For one Iraq War vet, the scene may have become all too real. After being shot in the face by a "police projectile," a canister from tear gas or a flashbang bomb, Scott Olsen, 24, is in critical condition.

Occupy Oakland has been the target of a notably vicious smear campaign mounted by the conservative media. They didn't just offer the usual pabulum about how the occupiers hated America or were closet socialists. They painted them as sub-human: mired in filth and gripped by violent anarchy. One right-wing blogger wrote a post amplifying an un-named police officer's comparison of the camp to "The Lord of the Flies."
