Best of Flashpoints for the Week of Monday January 30 2012

Posted on February 05, 2012 by Flashpoints

This week on the Best of Flashpoints: we spend the hour with Occupy Oakland. Last Saturday, January 28th Occupy Oakland had planned an event called Move-In Day. Occupy activists & thousands from the community planned to march to a vacant building whose location was never publicized, & they planned to put the building to better use. But the Oakland Police Department in full riot gear & heavily armed brutalized & arrested 400 Occupy activists & their supporters. We’ll feature a series of reports from those who participated in the march including several who were arrested. Also we’ll speak to a union activist about where the Occupy Movement goes from here.

  • Musicians!!

    We're searching for great new music produced by independent musicians and members of our global audience, so that we can be as non-corporate and copyright-free as possible. All genres -- from blues to electronica to world beats -- welcome!

    We like smart, political and well-produced music -- and are especially in search of possible new theme instrumentals. Please send it to Flashpoints, c/o KPFA, 1929 Martin Luther King Jr. Way, Berkeley, CA 94704, or email your Mp3s at with full descriptions and credits.
