Hey! By the title of this no doubt it's clear why I haven't been able to do any art. I've been hopping between the Occupations in the East Bay, and I was caught in the initial pre-dawn raid in which over 100 peaceful protesters were arrested, and all their property destroyed.
On the front lines were students, people in wheelchairs, at least one kitten, and not a single violent intention by the demonstrators. There were known police agitators in our ranks who threw things "at" police, giving them an excuse to shoot tear gas canisters at us. Hundreds of cops from every city in the surrounding area were dressed in full riot gear, armed to the teeth. When they advanced and began pushing back our lines, they had batons drawn and some drew their guns and fired rubber bullets at the unarmed protesters to scatter them. A middle-aged woman I know personally got shot in the head and back -- she is dying of cancer and came to support the people of Oakland, only to get shot.
I'm disgusted, honestly. They targeted our medical tent (which was adequately servicing the commune's medical needs except serious emergencies, contrary to police reports) and our food tent, which contained enormous quantities of healthy food that had been being cooked and served, 24-7, to any and all who were hungry in downtown. The homeless, the poor, the students, the media, anyone. The only reason we didn't have better, more sanitary facilities was because of police pressure, fact, and sanitation and safety were two of the main reasons Oakland justified the raid.

The amount of trickery and media deception has sickened me. I didn't read any news about the Occupations until today -- everything I know has been personally witnessed or heard about from my friends, witnesses themselves. When I got online to check the news for the first time, I was stunned by the lies. Police denied using flashbangs and rubber bullets at first, on Tuesday night's riots, but I got out of jail with one shoe and none of my belongings (including sleeping bag and prescription medications being held by police) and I went back to the protests and I saw and  heard both of those weapons being used -- people hiding behind bus stops to protect themselves from the riot cops.

When I was arrested, I did not resist. They sprained my wrist twisting it behind my back and pulled my pinkie finger back as far as it would go, ignoring my screams of pain and pleading for them to be gentle. I shouted no profanities or provocations. I was kept in a 5-person holding cell in Santa Rita in Dublin, CA along with 16 other girls. We all had $10,000 warranty, $1,000 bail, and people with dreadlocks had police threaten to cut their hair. They did not tell us our charges (or even if it was an infraction vs. misdemeanor) until we had been there almost 10 hours.

This stuff is messed up. General strike in Oakland.
Peace and Love,
Kiarei
