Michael Moore to visit Occupy Oakland today

OAKLAND -- Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore plans to visit Occupy Oakland's re-established tent city today, according to his blog.

Several tents are once again pitched in front of Oakland City Hall, the scene of a melee just three days ago when police removed protesters.

At the end of an Oct. 27 blog post entitled "Life Among the 1%," Moore writes "P.S. I will go to Oakland tomorrow afternoon to stand with Occupy Oakland against the out-of-control police."

The police response to protesters on Tuesday has been fodder for Jon Stewart's "The Daily Show" as well.

Thursday night, Mayor Jean Quan had hoped to speak to Occupy Oakland but left because she would have had to wait in line, said her attorney, Dan Siegel.

Quan released a letter addressing Occupy Oakland and apologized for Tuesday night's police reaction to protesters, when tear gas, rubber bullets and other devices were used.

"It was not what anyone hoped for, ultimately it was my responsibility, and I apologize for what happened," Quan's letter states.

Never cared for Moore. I have a problem respecting someone who lies for his own political agenda.

I bought his book to see what makes him tic. That doesn't mean that I support all of his activities. The book was actually very interesting,he was an activist at a very young age and obtained a seat on the school board while still in high school. I read a lot of books written by people I don't agree with,it's like Gen. Patton reading Rommel,you learn their strengths and their weaknesses.

I highly recommend Here Comes Trouble...

You know seriously. I wonder if this is the look he is striving for or if he just got it as a consolation prize? Shave, wash do something. Stand in the sunlight for a few minutes at least and get some color. Oh and have a gay guy pick out your wardrobe cause fakin it just ain't workin.
