OccupySF Resists Raid by Police and City Workers After Midnight, 10/6/11: photos, 2 of 2
On the evening of October 5th, after hundreds marched throughout downtown earlier in the day, the San Francisco police department delivered a letter to occupiers declaring that "this encampment is a violation of law." At 1:15am, police in riot gear moved in to create a line between occupiers and their supplies. SF Department of Public Work's employees then pulled up trucks on Market Street and began to clear out the site, taking the camp kitchen, tents, furniture, and more. Occupiers resisted by building a barricade around police and the DPW trucks. Demonstrators physically placed themselves in front of the departing trucks repeatedly on Main Street. One person was arrested on Main Street after having been assaulted with a nightstick.
