They've been planning it for a month and a half now. Occupying an entire building at an as-yet-undisclosed location in downtown Oakland, while having a shitload of fun doing it. At least that's the plan.  

From what I've seen tweeted peeps are coming from all over California and beyond to participate.

Will Mayor Quan show up, groove with the bands and eat free food? Or will she send in the Oakland Police First Amendment Suppression 600? Or both?

The weather is cooperating; sunny and warm is the forecast for Saturday. Whatever happens, it's going to be a Hella Day tomorrow.

Come on down.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
