Oakland -- There's no way to stop this now

Livestreams everywhere along with Twitter and Facebook have become the media platforms of the Occupations. The Livestreams often freeze or otherwise become barely or non-functional. Twitter and Facebook don't appeal to large swaths of the public. But many of the Occupations produce excellent videos like this one and post them on the YouTubes.

Agit-prop such as has never existed before.

And it's working.

Here's an additional video from last night. A Marine named Scott Olsen is wounded when he is hit in the face by a tear gas canister. (When I first saw this scene last night, I thought the wounded person on the ground was a woman.) People rush to his aid. The police then fire a flash grenade directly at the wounded man and those trying to help him. It is monstrous. Insane. These are the kinds of things that make the Occupation Revolution necessary.
