Solidarity with Oakland

Published Feb 11, 2012 10:19 AM

Two hundred or so activists protested in Philadelphia on Jan. 29 in solidarity with Oakland, Calif., Occupiers and against police repression. Demonstrations around the U.S. took place following the Jan. 28 attack on Occupy Oakland activists. After snaking through Center City traffic for an hour, demonstrators were eventually able to tear down two sections of the construction fence in front of City Hall. After a short speech within the space where Occupy Philly was camped out before its eviction, and as protesters were returning to the original starting point of the march in Love Park, police arrested two demonstrators.
