PROTEST

Oakland Activists Re-Occupy Plaza

Anti-Wall Street protesters in Oakland have re-occupied the plaza after being forcibly evicted Tuesday, pitching more than two dozen tents despite a ban on overnight camping. Last night, over 1,000 people attended a vigil for Iraq War vet Scott Olsen, who was injured by a projectile during protests following the Tuesday eviction. Meanwhile, an attempt to clear a Nashville protest encampment was blocked by a judge who refused to sign warrants for 30 protesters who had been arrested. And in New York, protesters are gearing up for a cold weekend made colder still by the fact that police have taken their generators, citing safety concerns.
