Hundreds of law enforcement officers from across the Bay Area encircled the Occupy Oakland camp at about 5 a.m. An order to disperse was given, and arrests began about 6 a.m., according to media reports. Before 7 a.m. all tents were reported cleared. About 32 protesters have been arrested so far, per the media. Dan Siegel, legal adviser to Oakland mayor Jean Quan, has resigned over the raid.
Quan had said on Sunday that "Camping is a tactic. It is one that has divided Oakland, a city of the 99 percent. It's time to work together on the issues of unemployment, foreclosures and education cuts. While the camping must end, the movement continues." SF Gate, LAT, AP, KTVU
