Channel 11 Bay area news stringers and protesters with family/friends in OPD tipped off OccupyOakland late last night that massive Oakland PD sweep was planned for early this morning.
At 4:15 AM PST,  OPD assembled and 'suited up' at the Oakland Coliseum, about ten  minutes away from protest.

UPDATE: OccupyOakland's twitstream as the Oakland PD action started:


7:03 AM PT: I'm so saddened by the over reaching and over reacting City of Oakland mayor and police department. Obviously, fear of the peoples voice is over riding common sense.
I've got an appointment and have to leave for a while. Thanks to all who've commented and taken action by contacting Oakland's mayor and Police Departments offices. Keep letting them know this is shameful.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
