Oakland General Strike Weds, Nov 2! Info + Schedule of Events

On Wednesday, November 2, thousands of Oakland residents, students and workers will be participating in a General Strike and Mass Day of Action – in solidarity with the worldwide Occupy Movement. The goal of the general strike is to shut down the city of Oakland for one day to show that it truly is the 99%, not the 1%, that controls what happens in our society.

Movement Generation has been working closely with groups organizing events during the day – including two marches on the big banks, as well as the family bike/stroller brigades.  Below is a listing of the main actions happening throughout the day, that are planned so far.  Join the mass day of action, as the world watches Oakland shut down the 1%!
