  • Related pitch: Susie Cagle's Illustrated History of Occupy Oakland

    Want to support something special?  Oakland Local is partnering with Susie Cagle to support her Illustrated History of Occupy Oakland a terrific project that is already 75% funded-but that needs your support to get to the finish line.


    Susie says: How does Occupy Oakland work? And could it be a model for the Occupy Together movement as a whole?

    Since the camp at Frank Ogawa/Oscar Grant Plaza first coalesced on October 10, it has grown rapidly to fill the plaza; and just as quickly, demonstrators have worked to create an infrastructure that turns this protest into a commune that welcomes a broad range of residents with a functional kitchen, library, media center, childrens space and their own camp security. From the General Assembly to the food lines to the self-policing, I will be producing a five-part series of graphic reportage to show how this movement is working for the diverse population of Oakland.
