Hundreds of protesters in the Californian town of Oakland have called what they described as a “General Strike”.

Teachers, trade unionists and trades people held rallies aimed at bringing the town to a halt.

The action was an extension of the Occupy Oakland movement criticising capitalism, which escalated after police attacks last week.
