|What would Don Perata do?|
News outlets are reporting that pissed off Occupiers tried to make their way into City Hall this afternoon, with plans to occupy Mayor Jean Quan's office for starters. So far protesters have not been successful, but they also aren't giving up.
KTVU reports that at about 2:30 p.m., protesters gathered outside the plaza, chanting "Shut down City Hall." They banged on the doors to the building, demanding the mayor let them inside.
A man inside City Hall reportedly came to the door, and essentially told demonstrators to use their inside voices. The group tried to push through the doors, but were blocked and locked out.
