“Welcome to the police state, look how many cops show up for a peaceful assembly.” – Abby Martin

“Abby Martin of Media Roots went to Occupy Oakland at 4:00 am to cover the second police raid on the encampment and crackdown against the peaceful protesters at Frank Ogawa Plaza.

The footage shows the intensity in the air leading up to the raid and the insane amount of police presence that showed up to crackdown and destroy the camp.
Mayor Jean Quan’s legal adviser resigned at 2 am in protest to the heavy police response.”
