This is viewer supported news

Some 50 activists took over the Oakland Federal Building yesterday in one of this country’s most dramatic direct actions opposing the Israeli occupation of Palestine. They occupied the building for 4 hours, locking themselves to bright yellow tubes that read "Unlock Palestine." 17 were arrested. Yesterday we got a call from David Solnit as he dangled 20 feet in the air from a banner he hung outside the building.

Guest:

  • David Solnit, Art and Revolution, speaking from outside the Oakland federal building that he and other activists took over to demand a free Palestine.
