Recorded October 30, 2011, 5pm. Dr. Angela Davis addresses the satellite Occupy Wall Street general assembly--Occupy Washington Square Park NYC--encouraging the movement to stay united (3:20) by quoting Audre Lorde, "Differences must not be merely tolerated, but seen as a fund of necessary polarities between which our creativity can spark like a dialectic" (4:24).

At the end of the speech, Davis brings news from Occupy Oakland--in regards to the police action, and Scott Olsen --and Oakland's call for a general strike on November 2, 2011 (6:14). "Decolonize Oakland, We are the 99%, We Stand United, November 2nd, 2011, General Strike, No work, No School, Occupy Everywhere."

NOTE: The crowd repeats--or attempts to repeat--the words of the speaker for the benefit of those located in the rear of the crowd who may have difficulty hearing what the speaker is saying. Why not use microphones, or megaphones, you say? In NYC, a sound permit is required in order to use these devices in public, and the police may, or may not grant the permit. N.Y. ADC. LAW ยง 10-108
