4:01 am
--and disperse the people that were there. >>reporter: the protesters out here are furious about what happened on around 1:30 a.m. and 2:00 a.m. this morning. as you mentioned, they took down the encampment that was right here in front of the bank of america building. officers were still lined up in front of this building and they put up barricades so that no one could get near them. it was about three or four days ago when they actually started to put up tents, there may be about 145. and they said when the police officers came in there may be about five to 10 people sleeping in the tens. those people were taken down to the police station process and release. some of them are already headed back over towards this location. they were really upset about this only because they said that it was apparently supposed to be a meeting with the city tomorrow and the
4:02 am
perspective is they are saying that thises a really bad--this is a really bad action that the city has tech. they were told they were supposed to clear out a justin herman plaza. there have only been about 20 police officers around here since i've got here. i have been here for about about an hour. i have not seen an increase of police, i have seen public works driving around in the area of the other than that i do not see any further action being taken as far shrine to take down the tents. but they did take down the ones that were in front of the bank of america building. right now you can see the protesters going in and out of this area. they are very upset about what happened.
4:03 am
>>justine: after police have raided the encampments we often see public works coming in to seal off the area and cleanup. >>reporter: i did see public works, there were basically sweeping this whole area. it did not seem like it was much of a mess because this in campus started about three or four days ago. so basically, what you had up there was just may be about anywhere from i guess this at about 14 to 15 tents there. it had only been 83 or 4 days so i do not think it was much accumulation of anything except that it was obstructing the sidewalk there. this is why police officers could the barricades, they remain up here and i do not know how long that will last. it is not clear if they will come back in with their tents and

raid. police have raided an encampment nearby writing from a market street. >>reporter: the morning justine, you can see that the police officers are still standing out there. and they just when a truck to wash off the streets, you can see that their kids are up in front of the market. this is the corner where the bank of america stands. that is where a lot of the tents were set up and that is where they were taken down. according to the protesters there were about 14 tents, anywhere from 5 to 10 people were sleeping at the time when the raid came, they were taken downtown and according to another protesters said that they were processed and actually let go. you can see one officer may be too standing there in front of the atm because there were about three protesters that are laying down right in front of the, right next to the
4:31 am
atm and they are justly been there in their sleeping bags. nothing has happened to them yet they're just being vigil about them and aside from that, people are kind of going back to the main area over there at justin herman plaza. some people are just going back collecting their stuff but they are staying in the general area. there were told that the campbell also be cleared. there is a mixed message that they are teen --seen from the city, they say they have an meeting with the mayor tomorrow at noon so when they got a message to clean out from the camp there were really taken by surprise. it made it really upset they hear it is they had a meeting pending with the mayor and then this happened. they did get a warning ahead of time from the chief of police say that they had to clear out the tense and it will be here on market street. they did not clear out the tents
4:32 am
so the police did come in around 1:30 a.m. and clear them out. >>justine: how many protesters did the police arrest? the you have a number? >>reporter: i now have an exact number but according to a protesters he witnessed that there were maybe five, or seven people they got arrested. >>justine: we saw from your shot that in front of the bank of america is clear, it looks like the protesters have left the in camera and our standing in the street which is legal correct? >>justine: to my knowledge it is legal, you just cannot be sleeping or setting upper tents but they are concerned because of a got the one about this small encampment from bankamerica they also got the one to clear out justin herman plaza. but since i've been here i have
4:33 am
not seen an increase in police officers. in fact there has been a decrease in police officers so it does not look like anything is set up to happen at the justin herman plaza that could change any time. my now, you see may be a sparing of police officers around there may be a total of six or eight of them around here, you can see a group right over here there are like four in the other two are down over by the atm. other than that you do not see a big increase of any police force out here. >>justine: all right, we'll keep our eyes and ears on this. now the people for sf, the occupy movement are no strangers to controversy. this is video from the last raid that happened at justin herman plaza it happened exactly one month ago on october 16th and continued into the early morning hours of the next day. several
4:34 am
protesters were arrested well after san francisco police gave them a written notice telling them that the park code does not allow tents or camping. the protesters have said that they have the right to assemble and the park and gives them the room that they need for the growing movement. in the meantime, thousands of occupy cal protesters were gathered outside of sproul hall on the campus of uc-berkeley in this happen late into the night. the protesters have again said uptentsw despite being--the protesters set up tents despite being told by the police that that is not allowed. >>reporter: more than 1500 people voted whether they should put tents up in front of the hall, and nearly

everyone was in favor. >>reporter: occupy protesters started pitching tents as soon as the vote was over while the university police looked on. last wednesday they did the same thing in a different location on campus and the police quickly moved in and removed the tents and hit those that resisted with batons. >> this is like a sculptor and a symbol promoting the occupy at wall street movement. >>reporter: former u.s. labor secretary now a professor at uc-berkeley said the following.
4:36 am
>> we must give people the opportunity to speak up about what must be done. enable our democracy to function as it should, not with money and not simply with the privilege but work the ability of people joined together. >>reporter: so far the university police have taken a hands-off approach and have not remove the tents from sproul plaza. >>justine: more now on the occupy protest the police said they were forced to release pepper spray on occupy protesters in seattle. officers said they were attempting to arrest a woman that swung a stick at them when the protesters intervene. what we are watching now is milk being poured on the eyes of people being sprayed with pepper spray. they say a 19 year-
