A common tactic by the American media during protest coverage is to focus on violent, sensationalist incidents. Yesterday, while thousands marched and went on strike in Oakland, a handful of “black bloc” demonstrators tried to vandalize a Whole Foods grocery store. Incensed by this behavior, a group of 99 Per centers surrounded the store and started yelling, “No violence!” The protesters succeeded in stopping the vandals from seriously damaging the store.

Watch it and see how Occupy Oakland protesters throw themselves between the vandals and the store. You will not see this on your local TV stations and channels.
