The Oakland Occupy Movement
We received word from Oakland/ California. The city’s occupy movement celebrates their stand for freedom and justice to the sound of mijkfunk’s “Kids Want Revolution”.
We are glad that this song inspires people to fight for their rights.
FunKills1969 left some amazing comments to the mijkfunk video.
Check the documentary video below at 5:28 min.
This video is also delivers great footage of the peaceful spirit of the Oakland protesters and the police fighting the crowd with teargas, rubber bullets, explosives and brute physical force. Big ups to Oakland, keep on doing what you’re doing!

Thank you for posting. We love you, Berlin! We love your song. In the video you can see how the police start the riot, like always, acting like pigs.
Right now we are going through growing pains. There is a huge divide inside the movement, which I believe to be a natural part of its evolution. Occupy Wall Street probably wishes Oakland would drop off the map, or at least stop using the name :occupy: (which would be fine with me. I don’t like the name “occupy”; it is the very language used by our oppressors. I’d rather decolonize than occupy…)Tonight, and every Saturday, is another militant march on the oakland police. (I dont go to the Fuck The Police specific marches because I cannot be arrested.) And while I personally don’t like to ape the police and fight them using their own tactics, I’m not against others doing autonomous actions. I’m all for it, actually.
I just want them to plan the actions better so they don’t get hurt. In the video, you see the police firing rounds into a crowd of people at random, a crowd that included a bunch of children, old folks, etc.
The Oakland police have a TANK. A fuckin’ TANK. And they want to use it more than they want another donut. Let’s be careful out there, and never give up. Peace and solidarity from Oakland. The Kids Want Revolution. That’s for sure.
