Members of the Occupy Oakland general assembly discussed more details of the proposed general strike in the early evening Friday, agreeing after much fanfare to march on the Port of Oakland on Wednesday, November 2the day of the proposed general strikeat 5 p.m.
With some tents back, the kitchen serving again, and the grass trampled to mud in most of the areas not occupied in front of City Hall at Frank Ogawa Plaza, the Occupy Oakland movement remained in full swing on Friday afternoon.

Suggestions ranged from including a clause about the environment, racism, sexism, and U.S. Imperialism, to striking in the name of Oscar Grant.
