there. there are medical emergency personnel staging. you see the car going by and flashing. this may be the worst kept secret in oakland history. everybody expecting the raid to happen. if you take a look at the video that we shot 30, 45 minutes ago, this is the backside. protestors started moving into the streets on the plaza and they have been there ever since. so we're west of that on 14th street. you take a look at the camp there. when i walked up through, people started to pull up stakes. what they did after that is not clear. some of the people that i talked to said they wanted to get their stuff out of the way so it would not get damaged when the police raid comes. and one of the people that i talked to said that he is not
moving his stuff. he said they're not giving up. >> they don't have enough money for a few days and give up. and we're going to come back in like we did last time. >> reporter: so this is a live picture of the north side of the plaza. you can see a little bit of activity. a lot of this is 14th and broadway. we'll have more on this from here through the morning. overnight, law enforcement staged at the colosseum to go to the occupy oakland encampment. officers are on the move. we can see it right now. >> reporter: we're here at the oakland colosseum. there is a great deal of activity here. no word who has been this will go down. we arrived about 4:00 this
morning. we saw a line of vehicles leave then. that line of vehicles was looking to do some kind of traffic enforcement. you can see there are more vehicles here lined up getting ready to leave now. again, no confirmation on what exactly is going on, whether this is the moment when they'll be beginning the activity to get rid of the occupy oakland site at the plaza. but we have heard a pa system here that has helped to keep everybody on the same page. so we know this is certainly a multi-jurisdictional group. we know that police officers from hayward are here, police units from the peninsula are here as well. so certainly a great deal of activity out here at the colosseum. we have been careful how we cover this situation. we can tell you what is going on is really no secret.
the occupy oakland has been tweeting about this and live tweeting is going on at the coliseum. so it is no secret to the folks over there what is happening at the coliseum. it's no secret to the people at the occupy oakland site. but we have careful in terms of how we word things, not wanting to create a situation. we're just going to work as best we can to report what is going on at that moment. we'll continue to monitor situation at oakland coliseum. we'll bring you the latest details from here and get a confirm if this is the time that the oakland police and other police agencies will begin the operation to remove the protestors at the place saturday. we're live at the coliseum. continuing the team coverage, we want to go back to downtown oakland where ally is and she has a slightly different vantage point from where craig is. >> reporter: we've been here
since 1:00 this morning. since then, the people who support and have been camping at the occupy oakland did not sleep this entire night. most of the people here said they were prepared and ready and waiting for the police to come break up the encampment. this intersection that is 14th and broadway that you're looking at, was full of three to 400 people. these are occupy oakland people that have been camping for the past month and people from san francisco and other cities that were texted to come and support the rest of the group and came out here to show up. in the last five minutes, we saw a large group of about 400 people start walking towards 14th and clay street. that is the other intersection that you see in the distance with that red light. we don't know why people are going that direction. we have been checking the texts that they've sent out and some of the things that they sent out on twitter. they're heading that direction. again the people here tell me that they have been expecting all night and waiting for all night the police to come and
break up the encampment. there was a lot of people out here playing drums and there was some chanting. there was some recall little and people -- rallying and people out in the streets drawing things with chalk on the ground saying you cannot get rid of us. some of the participants say they plan to come back here if the police do break up the encampment. but right now it's fair to say that there's not many people in the plaza. and that is because most of the supporters came out in the middle of the intersection, 14th and broadway ahead of this police raid that they're expecting. just five minutes ago they started walking down towards 14th and clay streets. we'll continue to be out here so far we heard some helicopters overahead. we believe they are news media helicopters, not police helicopters. the people said they're expecting and waiting for to happen any minute now.
