Occupy Oakland camp removed; operation peaceful

Monday, November 14, 2011

The much-anticipated second removal of the Occupy Oakland encampment at Frank Ogawa Plaza took place peacefully early this morning, with police moving in before 5 a.m. The camp was already largely abandoned in anticipation of the raid, with campers having taken down three dozen or so tents overnight, the Oakland Tribune says.

Add: About 100 protesters were facing down police near 14th and Broadway about 6:50, unable to get back to the camp as it was being removed. About 20 arrests had been made, but the operation appeared peaceful. An excerpt from the Trib’s live blog at 6:50:

The plaza has been cleared of media by police. A small group of protesters has taken up residence in a tree house in a sycamore along 14th Street.

A van carrying Mayor Jean Quan, City Administrator Deanna Santana, Interim Police Chief Howard Jordan and a few other officials just left to tour the plaza.
