Monday Must Read: Right-Wing Targets Occupy Oakland; Gun Lovers Descend on San Leandro

Stories you shouldn’t miss:

1. Right-wing media outlets are jumping on Occupy Oakland, contending that it is a poster-child for what is wrong with the Occupy movement, Mother Jones reports. Right-wing provocateur and noted birther, Andrew Breitbart, has led the charge, using local news reports to paint Occupy Oakland as being plagued by “rat-infested squalor with complaints of vandalism, public urination, sexual harassment, and sex in public.” And other conservative outlets are portraying it as “Lord of the Flies.”

2. On Saturday, Occupy Oakland protesters marched peacefully through city streets for several hours, the Chron and Trib reported. The protesters then went back to their City Hall encampment where they continued to ignore an eviction notice from the city. It’s unclear when and if the city will enforce the notice. Protesters said they would resist it nonviolently.
