Event notes:

"If you identify as peaceful and are likely to interfere with the actions of your fellow protestors in any way (including telling them to stop performing a particular action, grappling, assaulting or holding them for arrest), you may not want to attend this march. It is a militant action. It attracts anti-capitalists, anti-fascists and other comrades of a revolutionary bent. It is not a march intended for people who are not fully comfortable with diversity of tactics."

I don't think it will be possible for the Occupy name to be salvaged after this. I'm thinking that those of us who favor non-violence will need to regroup under another name.

"Congrats!" to Occupy Oakland. They've managed to badly wound something quite promising and wonderful with their acceptance of violence as a tactic. So sad about this.

Looks like they will be bringing the police state with them.
