2012-01-06 "Two Occupy Protesters Arrested Trying to Occupy Oakland Mayor’s Office" from "Associated Press"
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Oakland police say two people were arrested when anti-Wall Street protesters tried to occupy Mayor Jean Quan’s office at City Hall.
Police closed the building around 2 p.m. Thursday. The people who were arrested allegedly refused to leave and pounded on a side entrance door and yelled at officers.
Police later allowed four members of the Interfaith Council to enter the building and meet with city staffers about concerns related to Occupy Oakland.
City spokeswoman Karen Boyd says the two sides plan to meet again next week.
The attempt to occupy Quan’s office came after police the night before cleared Occupy Oakland protesters from the plaza in front of City Hall and dismantled the teepee they had set up.
Twelve people were arrested on suspicion of resisting police during the raid.
