Protesters Clash Over Vandalism in Oakland

More

Occupy TV's footage from the November 2 general strike in Oakland shows "black bloc"-style demonstrators vandalizing a Whole Foods and a Wells Fargo, only to clash with other protesters advocating nonviolence.

"It's time to say something, not do something stupid!" argues an east Oakland resident after fending off attackers with martial arts moves, "We don't need to be violent ... we need to open our motherfucking mouths and say something! Not do dumbass shit that's gonna get everybody gassed and shot the fuck up ... It's 'occupy!' Not 'destroy!'"
