Early moments and the set-up of the Occupy Oakland raid of 10-26-11. One of the most compelling portraits of "How to Raid" preparations you've ever seen!
The city of Oakland cannot afford a large police force. This mass was brought in from cities all over the bay...Oakland is broke and has to contract neighboring police forces. This puts time and numbers on the side of the Occupiers. Although their use of violence was and still is ill-advised, the world is watching and the tactic of attrition seems to be in their favor.
