Oakland and Greece show breaking points in the capitalist system

Just as Greece is hitting an economic crises and riots against more austerity, similar problems are coming to the US as seen in Oakland, California. Occupy Oakland was the site of mayhem as protesters stood up to police and closed a port and part of the city. This is not business as usual and it would appear that some of the protesters have their limits as to how much repression from the police they are willing to take. I have noticed red flags as well as protesters wearing “black” and “red block”  disguises and clothing. -សតិវ អតុ
From Occupy Oakland;
“Huge, enthusiastic, crowds swarmed through downtown Oakland with half a dozen major marches on banks and corporations that shut down Wells Fargo, Chase, Citibank, Bank of America and many others.  Police stayed clear of the strikers who ranged freely, from Broadway to
Grand Avenue
and around the Lake.  By late afternoon the crowds had swelled to over 10,000.  Waves of feeder marches continued to pour into the Oscar Grant Plaza, including 800 children, parents, and teachers  who had gathered at the Oakland Main Library.”
