The successfully stopped a homeless camp sweep. Here's the main details:
"But Union Point residents decided to put up a fight. Backed by activists from the anti-gentrification group United Front Against Displacement, they piled trash, furniture and other items into barricades at the park’s entrances, preventing city vehicles from getting through. Matt Long, who residents call the camp president, sat on a barricade and refused to move, while protesters lined up behind him.
The effort worked, and city workers left without clearing the camp. The conservation and development commission granted Oakland an extension, and Oakland officials continued negotiating with Union Point residents. About a dozen were left — down from about 50 months before."
