The International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) chapter in Oakland organized a work stoppage in ports along the West Coast of the United State and Canada on Friday June 19th. Members organized the action to commemorate Juneteenth and protest police violence against Black people. Thousands filled the streets to walk and listen to featured speakers like Danny Glover, Boots Riley, Angela Davis, and family members of Black people killed by police. Reporter Ninna Gaensler-Debs produced this montage of the Juneteenth protest. Voices featured in this piece: Keith Shanklin, Clarence Thomas, Willy Adams, Trent Willis, Michael Brown Sr., Pamela Price, Angela Davis, and Rosa Pergams.

Note from Zennie62Media and Oakland news Now: this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of 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-created and 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 content news 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.
