"Portraits" from a movement Inspiration for Oakland Standard project stretches back to '1968'


According to artist Lucy Raven, the roots of Occupy Oakland run deep.

"Oakland has a progressive radical history," Raven told me as she
and her partner, journalist Alex Abramovich, made their way back to the
Bay Area after interviewing retired Oakland Police Chief Anthony
Batts about recent Occupy actions. "The seeds sown in 1968 are flowering
now," Raven said.
