Out west in the land of activists and anarchists...

Oakland, California saw a couple of protests over the weekend.

The first was an anti-police march in response to the shooting of Michael Brown Jr. in Ferguson, Missouri. There were two arrests after police were reportedly pepper-sprayed by protesters.

The other protest blocked the unloading of an Israeli ship at Oakland's port. Union workers apparently failed to show for work after protesters formed picket lines.

They always seem to have something to protest in Oakland.

Oakland was a western hub for Occupy a couple years ago.

And for more than a year now, protests in Oakland and San Francisco have targeted employer chartered buses that carry Google and other tech company employees to work.
