Sit-in at Lakeview elementary raided, free classes continue, rally at 5pm

sit-in at Oakland’s Lakeview Elementary School ended early this morning as police from the Oakland School Police force entered the school building, making two arrests.

The dispersal was calm by all accounts, although protesters say that officers threatened to use chemical weapons to disperse the crowd, which included young children. (more)

excellent video here about why the school was occupied -featuring joel (activist, parent and former student), who was one of the two arrested this morning. help stop school closures in oakland and across the country!!!

everyone available should come out today at 5!!!
