ONN – OUSD To Hold Press Conference On Wednesday Night’s Board Meeting Disturbance
Oakland, CA (Release) — For the third session in a row, the OUSD Board of Education faced a protest on Wednesday night at its regularly scheduled meeting. The goal of the protest has been to shut down the meetings and stop the business of the District from being completed. Many of the same protestors shut down a City of Oakland – School Board joint committee meeting inside City Hall on Monday night.
Last night’s meeting temporarily ended when protestors jumped over and pushed through a barrier that was set up to protect the Board and staff. The meeting restarted once the Board and staff could be relocated upstairs to the Committee Room. Six people were arrested, cited for disturbing the peace and disturbing a board meeting, and released.
Today, the Board of Education, Superintendent Kyla Johnson-Trammell and Oakland School Police Chief Jeff Godown will hold a press conference to discuss what happened and to implore the protestors to keep their demonstrations peaceful.
WHAT: OUSD Board Meeting Disturbance Press Conference
WHEN: 1:00 p.m., Thursday, October 24
WHERE: 1000 Broadway, Suite 300
Note from Oakland news Now Technical: this video-blog post shows the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental zennie62Media mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of zennie62Media’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland news Now site and zennie62-owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
