§Update: Occupy SF raid at 888 Turk street
by D. Boyer Monday Apr 2nd, 2012 5:00 PM
Just got information from the SFPD's public information officer. 56 arrested and will be charged with trespassing, which are misdemeanors. The sheriff is processing the arrestees. They will be released when the processing is done. They are at the county jail. SFPD PIO stated that their officers were in fear of being attacked with stockpiled rocks, chairs and other debris.
Also 3 dogs were taken by animal care and control.
One occupier jumped out of the 2nd story window to escape the raid but was not injured.

I just got back from SF. I went there expecting to march to 888 Turk in support of the Occupants, but on arriving at the Civic Center, I learned that they'd been arrested. So about 150 of us marched to the Hall of [in]Justice on Bryant. It was a lively march, chanting "Whose street?--Our street!" and "Our passion for freedom is stronger than the prison," many other chants. Sometimes chanting, and sometimes playing music over a rather large PA system on wheels, we marched up Larkin, down Golden Gate, and then down Sixth. People in cars honked and waved. A lot of cheering back and forth. Eight motorcycle cops followed us at some distance, but otherwise left us alone. At around 7 p.m., shortly after we got to the jail and were dancing in the street, they started releasing people from jail, and we welcomed them back.

Lets re occupy Oscar Grant Plaza (Commons), Bradley Manning Plaza and other public place ie. Parks. Buildings are a bad idea and only work on college campuses with a student body sympathetic to the cxause in the 1960s get over it. In Oakland we had them over a barrel in Oscar Grant Plaza with four of Jean Quans cabinet resigning including her RAT police chief and we (I'm not speaking about the tree people or vigil or TAC) backed off for winter break - Slackitivism. We had the revolution we just need some refinement like no drinking in Oscar Grant Plaza (Oakland). In San Francisco a little less Kumbaya (security) and in Berkeley some kind of political issue not just a homeless encampment.
