You know that your protest movement has "made it" when Frank Chu shows up :D
"Tear gas, cops-gone-wild, broken windows, beaten protesters, all condensed down into headlines like "Protesters Confront Cops." By now most of you have probably read some version of Oakland's May Day; half truths at best, much of it outright lies.
But that's not what I wish to tell you about now. I want to show you some of what else came down in Oakland, California on May 1st, 2012, International Worker's Day and Immigrant Rights Day. I want to show you the inspiring and the amusing, the ordinary and the silly."
