OAKLAND (CBS/AP) — More Wall Street protests are planned around California on Saturday, including in Oakland, where police and demonstrators faced off earlier this week.

A rally against police brutality is scheduled for 6 p.m. in front of Oakland City Hall. A march is expected to follow.

Protesters clashed with police on Tuesday after an encampment in
front of Oakland City Hall was cleared. An Iraq War veteran, 24-year-old Scott Olsen, suffered a fractured skull during that confrontation.

Oakland Interim Police Chief Howard Jordan has promised to investigate allegations that police used excessive force.

Elsewhere in the state, protesters are being encouraged to wear Halloween costumes for a march scheduled for 3 p.m. in San Francisco. Events are also planned in Los Angeles and Sacramento.
