    Occupations SF Bay area: Reclamation, Defense and Injuries.

     

    In the early morning hours on October 25th police raided the Occupy Oakland encampment. That caused a confrontation between police and protesters causing many injuries including that of Scott Olsen who is an Iraqi War Vet. Scott Olsen was hit on the head with a projectile which was shot by unknown police forces. He is currently in critical condition and is suffering from a fractured skull. On October 26th the protesters were back to retake control of Frank Ogawa plaza in downtown Oakland.

    On Wednesday the Occupy SF location received letters warning of arrests and the destruction of their location if certain requirements weren't met. So people arrived at the Occupy SF location to defend it from a pending raid. The raid never occurred; however many local politicians and mayoral candidates were sitting with the Occupy SF-ers in order to stop the raid by police. However protesters protected that site with human shields and were ready for tear gas, and awaited arrest.

    In one of the images a protester is holding rubber pellets which were shot at the Occupy Oakland participants.
