Occupy Oakland

2 Nov

We began the day with a circle a the Intertribal Friendship House and sacred drumming.

Listen to the drumming:

We then walked to Ogawa Plaza. There were crystal blue skies and helicopter noise overhead. Inside, the heartbeat chant of Na Mu Myo Ho Ren Ge Kyo. People would stop, listen, bow their heads. We vigiled on the north side of the plaza for most of the day. Many people took pictures of us throughout the day; we hope they will send some to us (avalokita@gmail.com) so that we can post them here.
