The Violence at Occupy Oakland on October 25

By Kasia Cieplak-Mayr von Baldegg

In this video, filmmaker Raleigh Latham works to reconstruct the timeline of October 25 in Oakland, which began when police dismantled the Occupy movement's tent community in the early morning. The conflict culminated in the use of tear gas and rubber bullets to break up the protest in the evening, when Iraq veteran Scott Olsen was injured by a police projectile. The Oakland general strike of November 2 was in part a response to these events.
