Before the Occupy Oakland raid

Updated
 

The Oakland Police Department tore down the main Occupy Oakland site overnight and a satellite camp in Snow Park, firing tear gas and bean bag rounds. The video above was taken yesterday, before all that. The poster writes:

We work to mow the grass in the park while school kids jog around us for their P.E. class meanwhile a letter from the city is delivered claiming that we are restricting the use of the park for others.

The teacher plans to bring his students back tomorrow so they can talk to us and learn about what we’re doing here.

Oakland police say they arrested 75 people last night. More firsthand media on Storify. The San Jose Mercury News posts a timeline and tons of photos.
