Dear friends in the West Coast,

We’ve carried out the 2nd protest action against ITOCHU, representing the attached protest letter. Security guards handed in glove each other and inhibited us from entering the office. However ONODERA Makoto, a representative of Societal Management Dept. came out from the office at the end. He received our protest letter and confirmed to forward the letter to a representative of the Food Company of ITOCHU and ask its prompt reply. ITOCHU has been and is still persisting booster of privatization, outsourcing and casualization agenda of neoliberalism, and now makes a big push to join in TPP. Let’s fight together!

Last night, after one of the most remarkable days of resistance in recent history, some of us within Occupy Oakland took an important next step: we extended the occupation to an unused building near Oscar Grant Plaza. We did this, first off, in order to secure the shelter and space from which to continue organizing during the coming winter months. But we also hoped to use the national spotlight on Oakland to encourage other occupations in colder, more northern climates to consider claiming spaces and moving indoors in order to resist the repressive force of the weather, after so bravely resisting the police and the political establishment. We want this movement to be here next Spring, and claiming unused space is, in our view, the most plausible way forward for us at this point. We had plans to start using this space today as a library, a place for classes and workshops, as well as a dormitory for those with health conditions. We had already begun to move in books from the library.
