Occupy Oakland to Protest in Downtown Again Tonight
After the Tuesday morning raid, protesters gathered in front of the downtown library at about 4 p.m., and marched past the jail, where other demonstrators were being held after police arrested 79 people that morning.
But the afternoon march quickly turned violent when protesters got to the site of their old encampment in front of City Hall, which police had barricaded off; demonstrators tossed paint, rocks, and bottles at cops clad in riot gear -- and police tossed tear gas as well as flashbang grenades right back, filling downtown with smoke and screams.
Protesters finally dispersed by 11 p.m., promising they would be back tonight.
