Occupy Oakland: Dock Strike

Contrary to popular media's portrayal, the port blockade in Oakland on December 12 was not only very well attended, with a diverse crowd including families with kids and people of all shapes/colors/sizes, but it was super fun.  The videos below are not very representative of the gigantic crowds, which were closer to the center of the demonstration, but they do show us rocking out hard.  There were no problems with police.  From what I could tell it was all peaceful, civil, and it successfully managed to shut down the dock for a full 24 hours. High 5, Oakland.
