  • Sat, 23:19: Down on the street now. Cop insisted that I join the protesters or get behind the police line. Nobody seems to be getting arrested.
  • Sat, 23:24: I walked through the police line saying Coming through. I'm a human being, let me pass. That's middle-aged white lady privilege. #Oakland
  • Sat, 23:26: Cops are trying to encapsulate the protesters. Occasional scrambled announcements via bullhorn. Protesters talking seriously with cops.
  • Sat, 23:30: Several cops have a coil of cable ties, AKA plastic handcuffs. Protest is quiet and peaceful. No property damage. My car is here and fine.
  • Sat, 23:33: Most cops seem friendly. Debating the issues with protesters, who are of many ages and colors. We're in a mixed neighborhood.
