From #OccupyOakland's FaceBook page after the first rout from their encampment yesterday morning:
"Though we may be bloodied, we are even more determined to keep going. As we agreed upon in General Assembly, on the evening following any police assault on our camp, we will reconvening at the Oakland Public Library, on the steps. We will discuss our options and pick one, and then take action as a community to respond..."«o» Perhaps the only worse place to fight over holding ground would be Afghanistan - There was a showdown last night between a thousands protesters and a variety of police agencies in a park across from Oakland California city hall in an attempt to Re-#OccupyOakland. The battle went on for several hours with the police using massive amounts of tear gas flash-bang grenades and other tactical weapons.
There are still a few people from the protest nearby and the protesters WILL return today when the park opens for it's "theoretically regular operating hours".
There is no exact count on the number of arrests yet but there are a number of people in the hospital for injuries ranging from minor to at least one person who, due to 'depressed fracture injuries', appears to have been hit on the head by a nightstick or perhaps a tear gas canister...

OAKLAND -- Police fired tear gas at least five times Tuesday night into a crowd of several hundred protesters backing the Occupy movement who unsuccessfully tried to retake an encampment outside Oakland City Hall that officers had cleared away more than 12 hours earlier.
Police gave repeated warnings to protesters to disperse from the entrance to Frank Ogawa Plaza at 14th Street and Broadway before firing several tear gas canisters into the crowd at about 7:45 p.m. Police had announced over a loudspeaker that those who refused to leave could be targeted by "chemical agents."
Protesters scattered in both directions on Broadway as the tear gas canisters and several flash-bang grenades went off. Regrouping, protesters tried to help one another and offered each other eye drops.
One wounded woman, who others said had been hit by one of the canisters, was carried away by two protesters... [More, SF Chronicle]

The hundreds of officers at the scene came from police departments around the Bay Area, including the Alameda County Sheriff, Berkeley, UC Berkeley, Hayward, Fremont, Pleansanton, Union City Newark, Alameda, the CHP, Santa Clara, San Francisco and San Jose... [More H/t: Uprising Radio]

I was deployed to Iraq 4x
5 of my friends are dead
1 of my friends is missing his arm
1 of my friends killed himself
I've been blown up 2x by roadside bombs
Hearing fireworks makes me nervous
I can't sleep at night
All so bankers and war profiteers could get richer
I am the 99%
Remember... Capitalism has a gun at your head every moment you're alive:
(And PLEASE try to keep your government from killing all the dusky natives...)
