Demonstrators are planning to fill up Frank Ogawa Plaza starting at 4 p.m. Monday as the growing Occupy Wall Street protest movement spreads to Oakland.
The marches and sit-ins protesting economic injustice began in New York's financial district Sept. 17 and have since been repeated in about two dozen cities across the country, including San Francisco.
In a comment posted on an East Bay Express article about the Oakland protest, a commenter named Max suggested Friday that instead of Frank Ogawa Plaza demonstrators should, "Occupy Piedmont."
"Income inequality and inequality of opportunity? Look no further than Piedmont, a little town surrounded on all sides by Oakland, full of rich people who have their own rich school district. Piedmont sends it's kids to Exeter, Choate and Stanford and Yale. Kids from Oakland all too often sent to San Quentin or Kandahar," the commenter wrote.
Do you Piedmont deserves to be targeted?
