The Oakland Occupation on 02.nov.11. (flickr)

During the past few weeks, numerous people and organizations called for the second police raid on Occupy Oakland. Among the loudest and most influential voices demanding the crackdown were the Oakland Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce and two Oakland business groups. They contended that the City Hall encampment was bad for downtown businesses, especially small ones. The chamber and the business groups also purported to speak on behalf of small businesses in downtown. However, a closer look at the organizations reveals that they are dominated by representatives from big corporations, and in fact largely represent the so-called One Percent that the Occupy movement has been targeting..

» "How the 1% Crashed the Economy" Teach-in @occupyoakland

The economic collapse didn’t happen by accident. It’s the direct result of decisions made by Wall Street and our leaders in Washington to prioritize the 1% over everyone else.

If we want to rewrite the rules of our economy so it works for all of us, then understanding those decisions, and how we ended up here, is crucial.

This Wednesday, November 9, you can get answers and build your understanding at the “How the 1% Crashed the Economy” teach-in in Oakland. An American Dream Movement volunteer, Charles D., is leading a discussion about how the economic collapse is impacting our communities, who caused it, and how we can turn things around.
