The methods of protest have included peaceful assembly and open forums to achieve our ends and encourage the use of nonviolence to maximize the safety of all participants.

The Occupy Sacramento protest started on Thursday Oct 6th with a General Assembly held everyday to allow participants a chance to voice their opinions. Other events included teach-ins and marches, Facebook and Twitter and other social media including live streaming.
Various committees were formed to facilitate the co-ordination of events and logistical matters. Participants donated food and other supplies. Various events continue to occur with details available on the occupysac.com site.
The Occupy Sacramento movement achieved significant media coverage for the cause across blogs, radio, print news, tv and digital press. Much followup coverage was also focused on nine court cases with charges drop against protesters by The Sacramento City Attorney’s. They dismissed nine misdemeanor cases of protesters arrested at the Occupy Sacramento encampment at Cesar Chavez Park. While the trials were in progress a “First Amendment Party” was held at Cesar Chavez Park in sympathy with the raids of Occupy SF and the 110 misdemeanor arrests that occurred after a curfew was imposed by the city.
In another post event case an Occupy lawyer asked Brown to arrest police for a pepper spray incident. Occupy Sacramento members of SEIU and other unions marched on Governor Jerry Brown’s loft home to protest against the use of the pepper spray.
