Scores of Occupy protesters marched through the streets of Oakland, California, on Saturday afternoon, planning to take over a building that will serve as their new home base.
Aerial video showed the activists proceeding through the city's streets, many of them toting signs while others carried what appeared to be supplies.
While touting the action as "Move-In Day" on their website, occupyoaklandmoveinday.org, organizers have not stated what vacant building they plan to occupy. They also acknowledged that "like the encampment at Oscar Grant Plaza, the building move-in is not legal."
But the group said the move was necessary, in part because "since November, the city of Oakland and its police force have made it impossible for us to meet, to serve food, and to provide a place for people to stay."
