Coverage for the Occupy Oakland demonstration was just terminated coincidentally just as the police arrived on the scene — the only livestream available is without sound. According to various sources, the media has been told to turn off their cameras and depart the scene and they reportedly acquiesced. Helicopters are overhead shining lights down upon the protesters in the streets during this chaotic moment. Earlier in the day protesters were reportedly not resisting while they were arrested beginning around 5:00am after police surrounded the area, however, the police still found it necessary to fire a non-lethal projectile out of a shotgun and tear gas toward nonresistant protesters according to the Associated Press. Tonight is the second show of Police force as they fired tear gas into the crowd yet again. Protesters are scattering and regrouping when possible at this time.
