Occupy Oakland Ambushes Mayor Jean Quan at Community Forum
|This picture just sums it up|
The club had arranged a panel to speak about what's next for the controversial Occupy Oakland movement, which was booted from its camp site on Frank Ogawa Plaza last month. But protesters used that as an opportunity not to discuss its future, but rather to rail on Quan over the past.
KTVU reports that the panel was "barely seated before Quan became a target and some audience members were thrown out of the room."
Members in the crowd began shouting and chanting "liar" at Quan, who didn't budge. Quan finally responded, defending herself: "What the nation saw was a small group of anarchists break windows."
But the heckling continued as audience members started yelling "mic check" over Quan, who finally disappeared behind closed doors.
"I've been in tougher situations," Quan told reporters. "I've been bullied before, but I thought this was a chance to be positive. I tried to talk and they wouldn't let me."
