Police attack Occupy Wall Street protesters in Oakland City California

Protesters have been met with arrests and violence in Oakland California. This is the most destructive violence of the whole movement and it all seems to be centered in Oakland’s determination to keep protesters from actually occupying their city. This movement is all about occupation, not just peaceful protests.
The intention is to prevent business as usual and the US government praises those who want democracy in the Middle-east, while crushing it brutally here in the US. -សតិវ អតុ

Anti-Wall Street protesters march toward Oakland City Hall, hours after police arrest 85

OAKLAND, Calif. - Under cover of darkness early Tuesday, hundreds of police swept into Oakland's Occupy Wall Street protest, firing tear gas and beanbag rounds before clearing out an encampment of demonstrators.
In less than an hour, the 2-week-old, miniature makeshift city was in ruins.
Scattered across the plaza in front of City Hall were overturned tents, pillows, sleeping bags, yoga mats, tarps, backpacks, food wrappers and water bottles. Signs decrying corporations and police still hung from lampposts or lay on the ground.
Later Tuesday, hundreds of protesters gathered at a library and marched through downtown Oakland. They were met by police officers in riot gear, and several small skirmishes broke out.
The protesters eventually made their way back to City Hall for a game of cat-and-mouse as dusk approached. Police later threw flash bang canisters and fired more tear gas as the crowd dispersed up the street.
