One of the most contentious Occupy protests is going on in Oakland. More were arrested yesterday, including journalists, a week after an Iraq War veteran suffered a brutal injury during a police crackdown of an Occupy camp.
Some blame the long-brewing tensions between Oakland and its troubled police department as protesters called for a general strike, which prompted hundreds of downtown workers to stay home or leave their jobs early.
