Occupy Oakland, photo by Lane Hartwell

The occupation in New York's financial district may be the epicenter of the Occupy Wall Street movement, but Oakland, California is seeing plenty of action.

Last week, a violent police crackdown brought Oakland—home of one of hundreds of encampments inspired by Occupy Wall Street—into the world spotlight, with solidarity marches from New York to Cairo. This week, occupiers rebuilt their encampment, and thousands of people joined in a massive general strike, flooding the streets of the city and temporarily shutting down Oakland's port, the largest in the nation.

So what has it been like on the ground? San Francisco-based photographer Lane Hartwell sends this visual report from Occupy Oakland.
