Is this the moment when Occupy turned from protest to revolt? The San Francisco ABC affiliate KGO-TV reports on a dramatic turn in California (for an alternative take check out the #OakFoSho live stream):
Thousands of ‘Occupy Wall Street’ protesters peacefully marched in the streets of Oakland on Wednesday picketing banks and disrupting operations at the nation’s fifth-busiest port.

For a while the crowd danced in the streets outside the building and used large dumpsters to block the road leading to the building on Telegraph and 16th, near Frank Ogawa Plaza and hung a banner saying, “Occupy Everything.” Around 3:30 a.m. the protesters decided to peacefully head back to their camp at Frank Ogawa Plaza and back away from the police line.
