Once again, the people of Oakland are the losers.
Thousands of people descended upon Oakland by early Saturday night in a hastily organized counterprotest to the protests in Charlottesville, Va.
A group of perhaps 100 protesters briefly blocking Interstate 580 at Grand Avenue before a smaller group returned downtown and broke up about 11 p.m..
Members of the Occupy Movement had called for a Saturday night rally in downtown Oakland in response to a pro-white rally in Charlottesville, Va.
“Charlottesville, we’ve got your back. Bay Area united against white supremacy. Emergency Solidarity Demo,” one of the messages said, announcing the demonstration.
Trashing Oakland because of what’s going on in Virginia is stupid. The Mercury News gives us another example of why the fake news media is just as pathetic as the white bigots they claim they despise.
