'Crime scene'

Post by Mr007 on Mon Nov 14, 2011 10:10 pm



Police declared the Oakland plaza a "crime scene" shortly after Monday morning's arrests and cleared media from the area.

Hours before the raid, a legal adviser to Oakland Mayor Jean Quan resigned via Twitter, saying he supported Occupy Oakland.

The protest has been marred in recent weeks by outbreaks of violence.

A 25-year-old man, Kayode Ola Foster, was shot dead near the plaza on Thursday evening.

His family confirmed to police he had been a resident of the Occupy Oakland camp.

Oakland police said witnesses have told them that one of two suspects in the shooting also stayed at the plaza encampment.

Up to 1,000 protesters marched back to the Oakland plaza outside city hall on Monday evening.

"In case you haven't heard, we're already back in OG Plaza!" @occupyoakland said on Twitter.

Ohad Meyer, an Oakland resident, earlier told the Associated Press: "There are thousands of people who are going to come back."

In Oakland and elsewhere, city authorities said protesters could continue to gather at public plazas as long as they did not attempt to re-establish camps and stay overnight.

Oakland Mayor Jean Quan has come under criticism for her handling of a previous attempt to clear the protesters, in which an Iraqi war veteran was wounded.

Scott Olsen, 24, suffered a skull fracture on 25 October and his case became a rallying point for protesters across the country.

Mr Olsen confirmed on Google+ on Monday that he was home from hospital.

"After my freedom of speech was quite literally taken from me, my speech is coming back but I've got a lot of work to do with rehab," he said.
