Juneteenth Port of Oakland shutdown photos

Some photos of yesterday’s event:

These first few photos show the crowd gathering at the Port of Oakland


Next is the march over the overpass towards downtown Oakland

Next in front of OPD headquarters and at Oscar Grant Plaza

I always feel that some of the most important photos are of the signs that people carry, especially the self-made ones. Here are a few:

This and similar signs, though, were provided by Local 10. They refer to the move by the Oakland A’s to take over a chunk of the Port to build a ball park and related use. This threatens the survival of the Port and all the jobs that go with it. This move comes after they tried to take over some land of the Peralta Community College District. That attempt would have destroyed the iconic Laney Community College. See this article for more.
