Oakland PD preventing protesters from going to SF
Edited on Thu Oct-27-11 12:31 AM by RandySF
Oakland protesters are attempting to go to San Francisco and Oakland PD are preventing them from entering the BART station. It's going to get messy.

3. I left right after the general strike vote and got on BART
I guess I was one of the few lucky ones. They are trying to prevent them from going to San Francisco for support. Bastards.

4. It looks like another shutdown is going to take place.
Demonstrators with the "Occupy SF" movement are bracing for a brush with authorities Wednesday night after receiving a warning from police that the camp near the Ferry Building continues to violate local laws.

Ryan, a media representative for the camp identified only by his first name, said that the group is expecting police to descend on the camp at Justin Herman Plaza at either midnight or 3 a.m.

"A lot of people are already walking around with gas masks and goggles," he said, noting that they were taking additional unspecified precautions in the wake up the ongoing strive at Occupy Oakland.

The group said it met with San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee Wednesday during the day to persuade him to work with them to resolve any sanitation issues. But the group said Lee told them a shut down was inevitable.

5. Rumor has it that the police are going to take down SF at 12. Oakland wants to
be there to protect the camp.
