Some Occupy Wall Street protesters in New York City chanted Justice for Trayvon on Mar. 24, 2012 in honor of the slain Florida teen Trayvon Martin. (Examiner)

The #Occupy Oakland activists declared a sprin offensive “for Trayvon” this week.
Police One reported:

Occupy Oakland activists have set up a new encampment in a park north of downtown, calling it a response to the recent arrests of protesters in New York and the shooting death of an unarmed Florida teenager.

About a dozen people in six tents spent Wednesday night in Mosswood Park at Broadway and West MacArthur Boulevard. They were still there Thursday.

Police visited the group around 9 a.m. but did not ask them to leave, according to protesters.

“This is the start of the spring offensive,” said Melvin Kelley, a member of the group’s Tactical Action Committee. “This is our new encampment until May 1, when we retake” Frank Ogawa Plaza, which the group occupied last year.

Kelley said the activists had pitched tents to show support for Occupy Wall Street protesters who were arrested in New York’s Zuccotti Park last week while commemorating the six-month anniversary of the movement.

They are also protesting the killing of Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old African American who was shot to death by a white man in a gated community near Orlando, Fla., on Feb. 26. The man, George Zimmerman, says he was defending himself against the unarmed teen and has not been arrested.

  1. What is the latest anarchist cause du jour?

  2. Why do they keep telling that he was unarmed? It would be much more interesting to hear what a hooded 6’2 guy was doing inside a gated community.

  3. Oh, yeah, facts aren’t important, just feelings.

  4. Bring it on.

  5. What is wrong with Oakland other than being terminal liberal? They are broke, their schools are broken – crime is overboard and its not even safe to life behind barred windows down around the coliseum and other places.

    The last time the OWS’rs turned Oakland into a public sewer!

  6. In the summer of 1968, there were race riots in dozens of major US cities. Blacks looted stores and burned areas Los Angeles, Newark, Chicago, New York and Washington DC. We had a war in Vietnam with 500,000 troops on the ground. After flatening Barry Goldwater in 1964, LBJ realized he could not win reelection. Hubert Humphrey was nominated amid violent protests in Chicago as Mayor Daley rolled out the riot police during the democrat convention. Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young wrote “Chicago,” about the police brutality. Rule and regulations, who needs them! It’s on the album, 4 Way Street.

    Richard Nixon ran on a law & order and cleaned Humphrey’s clock. Could we see a replay this Fall?

  7. “shot to death by a white man”
    Never let the facts get in your way when you have an agenda.

  8. Why do they keep saying white man? If Zimmerman is white, then so is Obama.

  9. Liberals posing as anarchists, looking for an excuse to riot.

  10. Where is the outrage about the white boy chased down by blacks boys and doused with lighter fluid and set fire. That’s a real hate crime and the media is silent. What a disgrace our media is and what selective hypocrites the Democrats are.

  11. They’re gonna use this death as a race card for ALL the awful stuff coming down the pike from now until election day and beyond. What a disgrace.

  12. @jorgen, he was visiting family memebers. And so what if he has a hood on, there are many different races that where hoodies. The fact is he was walking from the store to his families home and he got shot. There is nothing that show this young guy was braking into anyone’s home or stealing a car. The shooter is wrong and that is it.

  13. ++

    Sharpton’s Freddie’s Fashion Mart times 10 all over again.. *sigh*


  14. ++

    has this hit the mainstream propaganda news channels yet?? /s/


  15. #9

    Anarchists posing as liberals most likely.

    “The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one
    fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly – it must confine itself to
    a few points and repeat them over and over”

  17. Hey wait a minute!! I thought all this Occupier business was all about the rich bankers stealing everybodies money and keeping the youth from finding jobs??? What the hell does the bogus packaged story the left hid from the public for a month until they were ready for Obama to tell them it was time to let it loose onto the public, have to do with the Occupier’s??? Who are these people now? Are they the permanent protest groups of the Democrats to keep pressure on us, (Saul Alinsky Rules For Radicals rule #8: Keep the pressure on. Use different tactics and actions and use all “events of the period” for your purpose.”)? So now they are going to be used by the Democrats to protest just whatever is current the Democrats want to make a big issue about? This saves the Democrats from having to go to the public and explain the reason for their new sets of laws they want to unload on us? Whenever they want to create a crisis they’ll just use the Occupier’s to push the need for new draconian laws to restrict more rights……of White people.

  18. The Democrat party’s terrorist wing once operated under hoods and today it’s hoodies. The more things “change” the more they stay the same. Congrats Democrats!!!
