Occupy Oakland General
At the General Assembly, activists debated whether to move quickly, capitalizing on the attention the previous day’s police actions had brought to their cause, or give themselves more time to organize. “I support a general strike right now to take advantage of this momentum,” said one speaker excitedly at the “people’s mic” that evening. “We should strike while the iron’s hot!” The sentiment was greeted by raucous applause, and the resolution passed shortly afterward.
Wednesday, November 2, was the date chosen. The strike, said activist Louise Michel at an October 31 press conference, was spurred “by a need to end police attacks on our communities, to defend our schools and libraries against closures, and against this economic system.” The occupiers, Michel continued, called for “a day of action in which the circulation of capital is blockaded, students walk out of their schools and people stage various occupations” around the city. The activists vowed to protest any businesses that keep their doors open during the strike.
