DISCLAIMER: The Occupied Oakland Tribune is media for the 99 percent. We are in no way affiliated with the Oakland Tribune or their corporate overlords, the Bay Area Newsgroup. Nor do we want to be.
The New York Times has called Occupy Oakland "long the most militant Occupy branch." And for good reason.
After being endlessly attacked by our own city government, Occupy Oakland has relentlessly continued the struggle of the 99 percent against crony capitalism and police repression.
The Occupied Oakland Tribune, a newspaper born out of the Oakland General Strike on November 2, is committed to spreading the word about Occupy Oakland and rallying people to our cause. We plan two more print issues over the next two months and we need your support to help publish them.
Issue 3, January 28: Occupy Oakland will launch a campaign to find a new home, as we have been denied the right to setup an encampment at Oscar Grant Plaza since November. The OOT plans to publish an issue dedicated to the crimes of Wall Street and the foreclosure crisis to premier on this date.
Issue 4, February 20: This date is tentatively scheduled as a national Occupy day of action for prisoner solidarity. The issue released on this date will focus on the prison industrial complex, from the death penalty to police harassment of Oakland Occupiers. We will focus on the role of race and class in the prison system and document the voices of those struggling inside the system.
All proceeds go toward printing the next two issues and anything over our goal will go toward increasing our print run, paying for future issues and preparing our future fundraising efforts. So please be generous and thank you for your support!
UPDATE: We plan to send copies of issue 4 to death row inmates in San Quentin prison, as that will be the location of the Occupy Oakland rally on February 20. This will cost several hundred dollars in shipping, so donations over the initial goal of $600 will go toward this effort.
