Occupy Oakland General Strike 11/02/2011
November 2nd, 2011 was a major moment in the history of Oakland. I arrived in Downtown Oakland around 8:30am not knowing what to expect. Armed with a camera and 2 lenses, I was ready. The crowd was maybe around 200 or so, some commenting that they expected to see bigger numbers. I figured they would come later in the day. After a few speeches, including one by Angela Davis, the marches began. I walked alongside the crowd and in the middle of it, capturing pride, anger, togetherness and in some cases, separation. Thousands were out in mass protest. It was amazing to be in the middle of it, freezing these moments as they unfolded. Check out photos I shot at Occupy Oakland.
