Oakland Mayor Quan has finally revealed her true nature with first trying to put more police on the ground rather than education or job opportunities and now the removal of a peaceful broad community protest against the Banksters. Mayor Quan "Who do you Protect" should be the battle cry as a Native American elder I am not surprised but publically disgusted at this stance. If the Oakland police move in, I am sure of a larger encampment from the Indigenous, Latino and African American communities which will be encouraged by yours truelly.
