Describe Oakland Army Induction Center here
During the Vietnam War young male draftees would arrive at the Oakland Induction Center for processing and their physical exams. Throughout the 1960's anti-war activists would conduct protests outside the Induction Center.
On Monday, October 16, 1967 approximately 4,000 protestors surrounded the Induction Center at 4:30 a.m. in an effort to prevent draftees from entering the facility. A clash between the protestors and over 2,000 sheriffs deputies and police officers turned into a bloody riot. 1 [This is a interesting part of Oakland's history that could certainly be expanded here on Oakland Wiki].
