Thank you for this same-day news post--it's so good to hear there was no violence. They be back soon in the same place, I'll bet. Interesting to hear the mayor's legal person resigned over the raid.

Interesting blog - the 59 pictures are great. The police certainly look menacing.

We can't afford to keep our libraries open here in Oakland yet Her honor, the Mayor, can spend two and a half million dollars supressing free speech!

Not only can the Mayor spend that much money, but she will then blame it on the protesters.

I like this web site, because they are constantly updating it. It's still live! I want a $5 gas mask, dammit!

7:30 p.m. Another member of mayoral team resigns

Deputy Mayor Sharon Cornu has resigned, effective immediately, the second member of the mayor's team to submit her resignation just today. Mayor Jean Quan's legal adviser and longtime friend, Dan Siegel, also resigned today over the mayor's handling of the Occupy encampment.

8:28 p.m. General Assembly has reconvened at Frank Ogawa Plaza

Between 200 and 300 people remain at the plaza after splitting into small groups to discuss future plans for Occupy Oakland. A proposal to conduct outreach to north, west and the east Oakland communities was shot down earlier. The general assembly has reconvened and is continuing to discuss what is next for the group. People are offering up different proposals, such as using the plaza for organizing during the day, but not camping there at night. Some say it's important to reoccupy the plaza, but no one is suggesting they do that tonight.

8:45 p.m. Sign hung on City Hall mocking mayor

Someone has hung a sign on the main door of City Hall that reads, "There was a mayor named Jean Quan with a fetish for gas and batons. She was shaking her fists and looking quite pissed cause those kids wouldn't get off of her lawn."

About 200 people remain at the plaza continuing to discuss future plans for the group.

The local news websites have not posted articles yet about the resignation of the Deputy Mayor.

I did find this article about the city getting sued over police tactics.

I am all for the occupiers...but when I saw the pictures...well...I wish they would be cleaner, there is no need for garbage everywhere..each and every person should be mindful of their own garbage and dispose of it appropriately, in receptacles, or if full...take it home or to the dump, we don't want to give ourselves...the 99% a bad name...come on people!!!

Ever since Nuremburg, it has been understood that the saying, "I was only following orders, " does NOT absolve one of one's moral obligation or legal liability. We must help the police and their unions to understand that this movement seeks economic and social justice for them, just as it does for ALL AMERICANS.
