Six arrested in anti-police march in Oakland, California 08 Jan 2012 Six people were arrested, one for carrying a quarter-stick of dynamite [?!?], during a late-night protest march through downtown Oakland, California, marked by various acts of vandalism, police said on Sunday. The unrest Saturday night followed Twitter messages calling for an anti-police rally by individuals identifying themselves as supporters of Occupy Oakland, a local offshoot of the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations against economic inequality. Organizers said the march was aimed at protesting what they called excessive force by the Oakland Police Department.
