Occupy Oakland General Strike Livestream

Here is a livestream of Occupy Oakland, embedded below.

Already, according to Twitter, protesters are massing on the streets in Oakland and stores like Walgreen's and Men's Health are closed.

Apparently (again, according to tweets) the Longshoremen's Union has shut down the Oakland port and Angela Davis told the crowd "we are the ones we've been waiting for."
