Tear Gas, Many Cops


Lots of powerful documentation from last night's assault on Occupy Oakland, in which dozens of police in full riot gear arrested at least 85 people and tore down the protesters' encampment. Intense video here, photos here, a visit to the wreckage of the "crime scene" here.

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
