A good recap of Occupy Oakland events from 10/25. Interesting for a lot of reasons, especially as an out of town Oaklander. Beautifully shot and edited by Dan Truog. As a side note, Getback fans will notice the beat for “Babysittin” around 2:30. I also got a fascinating email from Mayor Jean Quan this morning apologizing for some of what is shown in this video. I am curious to see how all “progressive” cities adapt to an increasingly inconvenient Occupy movement. Crazy time to be alive.
i know this video is old. i know a lot had happened since then. but oakland is my home, the place where i was born and raised, and this morning i sat in my living room in the middle east and i cried for a city, my city, on the other side of the world.
