SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) –The Occupy San Francisco encampment is growing, boosted by refugees from the Oakland camp, but protesters in San Francisco fear a police raid on their camp is imminent.

Police came and dropped off hundreds of metal barricades Monday, stacking them on all four corners of Harry Bridges Plaza, fueling speculation within the Occupy SF camp that this will be the next site raided by police.

The growing number of police on the scene, however, said they knew nothing about a raid, and couldn’t give a reason for the barricades.

KCBS’ Doug Sovern Reports: 

Meanwhile, the Occupy SF tents now run the length of Market Street, from the Federal Reserve, all the way to the Embarcadero.

Occupier Michael Williams said that protestors chased out of Frank Ogawa Plaza in Oakland are joining this camp.

“Oh yeah, at least half of Oakland’s Occupiers are here, and I believe we’ll get a mass occupation,” said Williams.

Other members of the former encampment outside Oakland City Hall were apparently pitching their tents at a smaller but growing protest at Snow Park near Lake Merritt.

KCBS’ Tim Ryan Reports:

Meanwhile, students and faculty at UC Berkeley were holding a full day strike and “teach in,” which was expected to draw activists from the Occupy Oakland movement.

    At this rate, the occupiers will out rival the tourists as they did in Oakland… suppose the cost to SF taxpayers will also exceed the 3 million spent in Oakland… at this rate both Oakland and SF, cross town rivals (sports) will now contend for the next, who’s lost most from occupiers? Chalk SF w/Oakland as another city with attractions being ignored by city officials in favor of supporting more the occupiers. Oh well, time to look to the south bay for destinations to tour.

    1. lukuj says:

      On my way to visit family in SF area and definitely will NOT go to SF as planned as long as the occupiers are around. We’ll find somewhere else to go. I’m sure we are not the only ones who will spend our money somewhere else.

      1. utwit says:

        you’ll avoid the entire big city because some hippies are in some tiny corner down by the embarcadero?

        the truth is, all the bums around union square and market st have moved down to the occupysf camp.

    2. Buck Ofama says:

      who the fvck would want to visit oakland anyway?

      1. jnsesq says:

        There’s always ChiCongo.

    3. Paul Revere says:

      We can still save Western Civilization by taking back our college campuses from the insane left-wing Marxists who indoctrinate our kids!

      Support the Youth for Western Civilization today!

    4. Tahoe says:

      Oakland Occupiers should camp out at the Claremont Hotel, home of the One Percenters they’re targeting.

    5. John Steele says:

      OWS camps are now being called Obama-ville. Barack is the instigator and it’s fitting that these trash pits with people should be named after the President…

      1. drphil69 says:

        I believe James Taranto, of The Wall Street Journal, came up with Obamaville. I know he’s been using it for awhile.

  2. FRANKOK says:

    Who would of thought they would go to San FranSICKO

    1. St says:

      People have lost direction, Half don’t even know what they are fighting for.
      But we all can agree, some things are not right

    2. patty says:

      They should go visit Nacyo Pelosio. She thought it was so wonderful, this grassroots (marajana) movements.

    3. freecheese says:

      They’ll fit right in. They can use the “Sanctuary City” clause to stay there forever. SF deserves them, and they have found a HOME.

  3. Michael Veramo says:

    The top 1% earners DO NOT live in Oakland. They do however, live right up the road in PIEDMONT…GO OCCUPY PIEDMONT. Or go occupy Woodside, Los Gatos, Atherton, Palo Alto, Blackhawk, Monte Sereno…..Oakland is a working class town.

    1. Fred says:

      Piedmont and Montclair are part of Oakland you idiot. And people are supposed to “occupy” it why? Because I work my butt off and I’m succesful??Get a life loser!

      1. R Marshall says:

        Class warfare–pitting Americans against each other–is exactly what Obozo wants. Hatred and envy of one another will re-elect this complete and utter failure.

        Obozo is counting on it.

      2. Aunt Fiona says:

        Montclair is part of Oakland, Piedmont is not — it’s a separate, incorporated city. Get the facts before you call people names.

    2. freecheese says:

      Who are you trying to kid? Last time I checked, Oakland was a black ghettto, crime infested welfare state.
      Working class town? Change your meds and ditch the crack pipe !

    3. John Steele says:

      They need to got o Washington DC. It is the frickin government who runs the banks and is responsible for the housing market collapse. They messed up the economy in the 1930’s also and Barack is following FDR’s blueprint for Marxism

      1. S Von Smith says:

        Wrong, it’s the banks that run the government.

      2. R Marshall says:

        That means YOU ARE electing corrupt politicians, S Von.
        Occupy 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue!

    4. DJM3 says:

      Maybe they can go up to one of San Fran Nans mansions on knob hill and camp out. I am sure she would invite them in

  4. Mark says:

    Move to Nancy Pelosi’s house.
    I hear she’s down with your occutantrum “movement”.

    1. 4sailing says:

      Occutantrum – love that! Perfect description.

    2. MakeemStop says:

      Great idea Mark. Does anyone have Pelosi’s address? I think it starts with 666 but I’m not 100% sure.

      1. Andrew P. says:

        I believe it is 666 Diablo’s Puppet Rd, Naraka, Hell 00666

    3. Johnny5 says:

      Nancy Pelosi the hags-been!

    4. DJM3 says:

      Have the flea bags go to Princess Nancys knob hills homes or maybe former mayor Dianne Feinstein, both of them made MILLIONS LAST YEAR FROM INSIDER TRADING. do any of these “patriots” know that all thier leftist freinds in Congress are theiving off of wall street?

  5. Marlene says:

    San Fran is a good place for them. They can hang with the rest of the loons and I am sure local government will love to clean up after them.

  6. Il Bui says:

    LOL! Roving bands of criminals in lib controlled cities. Fitting.

  7. Judy says:

    Great place for them, Nance’s house would be a great place to start.

  8. James says:

    That’s where they belong. San Fransisco can have them and the city can become their sanctuary city.

    1. Buckeye says:

      .. going to take up a collection to send our owstreeters to the SF stinktuary city…hell we expect snow in Cleveland this week they should love the SF climate… it is good we can send our fruits and nuts to the land of fruits and nuts…

      1. R Marshall says:

        Your stinking rust-belt cities will still smell like sh!t!! lol

  9. fecal_heroes says:

    Liberal, Neo-conservative useful idiots and critics of Assembly, and frankly haters of truth and freedom, exist by feeding on the entrepreneurial, middle class.
    Which explains why the nation’s prayers are with the millions being victimized by selfsame Zionist apparachiks of the Fed, IMF and World Bank. And with the Anonymous brigade.
    For they know, the bad children and parasites who are proletariat will never admonish the Crony Capitalism feeding their addictions and narcissism. A special interest needful and earnest of all the hearty, steamy excrement patriots can provide. Sh!t and p!ss on, noble flea-baggers!

  10. Concerned Resident says:

    People are getting mugged in the Marina and Russian Hill as occupy protesters are eating up police resources. Kick the protesters out immediately and get back to keeping our neighborhoods safe.

  11. ted willems says:

    Can some one tell them Holloween is over, and that it isn’t a paid holiday?

  12. KickTheKenyanOut2012 says:

    The Thanksgiving and Christmas Season are local business’ and restaurants Bread and Butter for the entire year – so it’s just a short matter of time before the OWS Movement is moved out. Perhaps they should camp out ’round Nancy Pelosi’s house?!?!?!

  13. Arthur says:

    absolutely PERFECT! A bunch of poor left wingers occupying a city full of rich opulent Obama voting left wingers. This is music to my soul. I hope they wreck that entire city!

  14. Diego Roswell says:

    Nobody cares.

    1. Buck Ofama says:

      Ovomit cares.

  15. Southbound Jones says:

    It’s so cool watching the liberals reap what they have sewn.

  16. Dave says:

    Perfect!! But then again, they might be invisible in San Fran-freako

  17. Hawkdriver1961 says:

    I say send everyone of them from around the country to SF….Oh the poetic justice and irony of that act would be sweet indeed…..

    1. Beenaroundyaknow says:

      I’ll contribute a bus ticket

  18. billybeer says:

    Nancy, oh Nancy, we’re Home….. What have you got for us???

  19. gaar says:

    Let’s see, OWS IS Marxist.They are fighting the police, who belong to a Marxist union. The police take orders from a Marxist city administration, in either city. On fact the whole state is run by Marxists. The people just watch it on the Marxist media. Of course the whole thing is our fault, and we pay for it. When are we going to stop contributing to this religious society they have built for us.

  20. The Bruce says:

    The marxist bowel movement, otherwise known as OWS, will fit in quite nicely with the freakshow that is downtown San Francisco.

  21. AL says:

    What a bunch of OWS-holes! This shall henceforth be known as the “Bowel Movement.”

  22. caligula says:

    these fools are just looking for a free place to live and do drugs. that’s all and everyone knows.

  23. shempus says:

    stop panting, frotht a r d and gits a job.

  24. MakeemStop says:

    Oakland is like 100% DEMOCRAT. You made your own bed folks… I may even donate to these communist occupiers so they can extend their stay. And only then do I hope they camp out on Pelosi’s lawn.

  25. shempus says:

    wow, deep. absurd, yet flaccid.

    1. Buck Ofama says:

      Just like Ovomit.

  26. Craig Eliot says:

    Does anyone really think that the banks and corporations running this country are going to allow themselves to be put out of power? Ha!

  27. JohnsonLargess says:

    To “occupy” private property while making demands is hardly a democratic expression. We all clearly see that these people are bitter Marxists who failed to do anything useful with their wasted lives and now they are lashing out at those who choose to bust their butts and work hard. The democratic party truly needs to shake off these violent Marxist parasites if they want to survive another election cycle.

  28. Tim says:

    Good, maybe someone can defecate on Nancy Pelosi’s head instead of on the streets. She has $hit for brains anyway…..

  29. Riteaidbob says:

    I can’t wait until SF decides they need to throw these bums out. LIBS hate when they have to act like normal people!

  30. nevadavoter1 says:

    Just more vindication of my decision to leave SF and CA permanently in the 80’s. It is a thrill to watch them tear down Bagdad by the Bay.

    1. IndyGuy says:

      I left in ’85. In Denver they kept Occupy out of City Park right from the start. I don’t care if they want to protest, but camping out in a public park is NOT a protest.

  31. R Marshall says:

    These comments are hilarious! OWS-holes Bowel Movement! San FranSICKO, San FranFREAKO!

    Leftist defecating freaks, wreak your disgusting havoc on the rich Marxists who love and support you.

    1. Whitey Ford says:

      Amen brother

  32. Oh Yeah says:

    Boot out the SF occupunks. Tourism is our number one industry and if I was coming into the city, I would avoid any area around these people. Along with the sanitary conditions, they are a blight on my beautiful city. On top of that, people cannot simply decide which laws to follow or not – parks close at 10pm = you leave. Blocking a walk way = you move. Doing drugs, defecating, urinating in public, ALL ILLEGAL. Sure, there is fiscal inequality, but that’s life! you think wasting tax payer dollars helps? How many shelters, job assistance programs or homeless programs will be subtracted due to Oakland and everywhere else having to shell out $$$ for the added police?

    1. Whitey Ford says:

      That’s what you get for living in a leftist Utopia. Now take it and like it!

  33. terry rohan says:

    I say its a sanctuary city, the gang, I mean mob, I mean, the flea baggers should all go to Pelosi’s house.

  34. Buck Ofama says:

    Abramovich paid his debt.
    These flea bag assh0les believe YOU should pay THEIR debts.

    Decide for yourself, fool.

    1. artist_sf says:

      They are hurting the businesses of over one hundred street artists who bust their butts every saturday trying to make ends meet… very dumb of the occupy sf folks to be hurting some of the very people on the opposite end of the spectrum from the one percent. They don’t seem to give a damn that they are ruining artists’ ability to pay their rent!!

  35. Buck Ofama says:


  36. Jullouwe says:

    Now we know why Obama needs so much campaign money (i.e., to pay the thug occupiers). He needs them to create a bogus movement to re-elect him. This is all he has folks. Very sad that the so-called mainstream media is supporting this.

    What is bad for America, is good for leftists/liberals/Democrats. What kind of people have taken over the Democrat party?

    1. R Marshall says:

      Communists who hate America.

  37. Bgergen says:

    Sea Picles headed for the mother ship (cess pool)…how appropriate…

  38. Midge Morton Masters says:

    Occupy The Federal Reserve that prints money out of nothing and then lends it back at interest. It’s a private banking cartel of thieves and thugs and has enslaved your grandchildren with an unplayable debt.

    It’s the heart of the beast …. occupy it.

  39. smooveJ says:

    If these commenters were half as clever as they think they are, they’d learn how to use spell check. I mean, wow.

    1. smooveK says:

      Shouldn’t that be:

      I mean, “Wow!”


  40. Hey Now says:

    Come on San Andreas Fault, do your thing already and rid the USA of Commie Central.

    1. R Marshall says:

      Scr&w you. There are still a lot of good people in California. Earthquakes happen all over the country you know.

      1. Roger Sterling says:

        So when are those good people going to remove the left-wing commie trash and foreign invaders that are ruining California?

      2. R Marshall says:

        Scr&w you too, Roger. NYC is a leftist cesspool, too, did you wish 9/11 on them, @hole?

  41. David Maxwell says:

    Excellent, and I would like to invite “occupiers” from everywhere to come to San Francisco. Advantages: You can go naked, even in restaurants. You can visit the NAMBLA headquarters. You can bring a friend from south of the border, despite their immigration status. You can have free food, drink, drugs, sex, and even clothes. You can enjoy the stench of a sewer system that no longer functions because of low flow toilets, which should blend nicely with your “hygiene”. Yowser, yowser, yowser, come one, come all to the city by the bay. By the way, sexual assaults will be dealt with by fellow occupiers, and not the police. You know, for those of you who like a little spice with their sex. San Francisco like totally supports your “cause” , so pack up those Vanagons, buckle up those Birkenstocks, come west, and take whats yours. Everything is FREE in San Francisco. Enjoy

    1. Impeach That Punk says:

      David: Beautiful… that’s just beautiful !! EVERYBODY SING !!! ” If you’re goin’ to San — Fran — Cisco…. be sure to wear some flowers in your hair…” ( to cover the STENCH of you filthy SSA-HOLES…
      ” If you’re going to San — Fran — Cisco … you’re gonna’ meet, some SMELLY COMMUNISTS there…”
      My apology to Scott McKenzie…
      I actually like the song… message sux, but the chords blend well…

  42. Whitey Ford says:

    These Losers need to grow up and get a job! A ‘teach in”?? What a total joke. Put down the Marx and pick up a broom. These whiners are entitled to nothing, especially my hard earned money. California is bankrupt, and responsible citizens are fleeing in droves. This is a big part of the reason. Teach that Berkley!

  43. Impeach That Punk says:

    Wouldn’t that be AWESOME if they ( Occupy Morons ) tore the KCUF outa’ San Franscisco ? Who would that B!TCH Pelosi blame for that one ??

  44. j14401s says:

    Couldn’t happen to a nicer city.

  45. JustAGuy says:

    After the occupiers cost the Oakland taxpayers unnecessary expenses from police overtime and destruction to public property, they’ll head over to San Francisco to cost those taxpayers unnecessary expenses as well.


  46. Faxon says:

    The new mayor, Ed Lee, won’t do a thing. He is in the pocket of the extreme leftists. I hope the mess grows like a cancer, and takes over the entire Downtown area.

  47. Robert says:

    Now lets see if princess Nancy still approves of OWS now that they are in her district… Typical liberal morons are all for whatever doesn’t affect them. Have fun there queen of the hypocrites.

  48. Massimo Deportado says:

    When a liberal burns a US Flag, he means it….

    1. JustAGuy says:

      When a liberal defecates in public as a sign of protest, he means that too.

  49. CaBob says:

    We used to vacation in S F a few times a year but the homless beggers who are every few feet and who get nasty when you can not give to all of them, the tiny Prius taxxi’s the smell from the low flush “green” toilets drove us away a few years back. The occupiers can have it.

  50. Oakland Taxpayer says:

    Something is lost here and the comments say it all. City officials in both Oakland and SF are contributing to the wrong message … encouraging occupiers vs tourism…again, at expense of both taxpayers and small businesses One could only imagine if the posts here were highlighting SF’s Fisherman Wharf vs Oakland’s Jack London Square, Oakland’s Zoo vs SF’s Zoo, SF museums vs Oakland’s museum, and SF landmarks vs Oakland landmarks. City Officials have lost their way and obviously favor their occupiers, some of whom contribute two black eyes to each city.

  51. godzilla07 says:

    I gave up on the Occupy Oakland when they wanted to change the Frank Ogawa Plaza to Oscar Grant Plaza, after a felonous drug dealer.


    They are at the right place!! They need to pay Nancy Pelosi’s office a visit. She has been one of their supporters, but has now been outed for doing some insider trading based on INSIDE INFORMATION.

    The Occupiers might want to have a ‘discussion’ with Nancy and her husband!

    Nancy might even want to go out and welcome them!!

  53. AnimalFarm says:

    Awesome! Can you provide them with Nancy Pelosi’s home address?

  54. IndyGuy says:

    The real 99% go home every night to their families.

  55. BigBoa says:

    The mighty Boa WARNED you that O’Bozo needs to be removed immediately. The mighty Boa also warned you that only God knows what else he will pull between now and next year.

    Then he also warned you why the occupiers need to be confronted by the people and disbanded. Many claiming to be “conservative” called such testimony “shameful”……

    Well here’s to hoping those same pu$$ies now enjoy rampant disease coming to a neighborhood near them and here’s to hoping their relatives contract it.

    And by the way, enjoy the dictatorship.

    You were told that this imparting of wisdom would come to and end and the time has come. Reap what you have sown. So it is said, so it is written.

  56. Rocco says:

    Poor Obama. He’s doing such a poor job that people are rioting in the streets!

  57. DUGinFLA says:

    Ah, there is a God.

  58. Sal says:

    I wish all the OWS groups around the country would all go to San Francisco where their obscene beharior is appreciated. Nancy Pelosi can serve them food (although she will probably charge them with a credit card since she and her hubby got a sweet deal on the IPO recently) And maybe….just maybe we will get lucky and the big one will hit SF and take it into the Pacific.

  59. Scott Davis says:

    Obamaville, Oakland, Obamaville San Francisco, are stocked by highly trained and compensated Berkeley Rent A Mob professional provocateurs who have been HQ’d in Berkeley since the late 1960’s. They are International Socialist ACORN sponsored Street Thugs.whom are under orders by a line staff heirarchy of national community organizers headed by Obama. Do any of you remember Obama;s 2008 revelation about how he envisioned a civilian army with a budget as big as the US Military? What we are seeing today is the implementation of Obamal’s master plan (his fascist pipe dream) to develope and recruit a network to establish channels of brick and morter Obamaville franchises nation wide. They have a black budget and will use any means necessary to achieve their objective which is to overthrow the Republic of We The People. The response of America to this Obamaville cancer so far has been unfavorable and annoying beyond our collective patience. We are blessed that there is no unity among the heathen and this is because it is not a grass roots movement (unlike Tea Party) but contrived from the top…Obama Pelosi, Reed,. We can put an end to this bowel movement by Voting The Obummer and all his hacks out in 2012.

  60. snap says:

    I’m surprised the Occupiers are not seeking refuge at Nancy Pelosi’s house; surely she would allow them to set up tents around her house and along her block.

  61. Climp Jones says:

    when observing the ‘occupiers’ is one aloud to feed them? Have their minders determined wants a safe distance to observe them? Is it true that many of the ‘occupiers’ look & behave like actual humans? Is it ok to call them squatters? Are the occupiers/squatters anything like the ‘shrimps’ in District 9?

  62. DrKarlStalin says:

    Очень поздно для Америки.

  63. Tony Raskoon says:

    If only more of the displaced movement would locate there. The weather would allow occupation year-round you know.

  64. popseal says:

    I didn’t know that defecating slugs could migrate…..

  65. Ericthered says:

    Good! March on Pelosi’s house, political offices, or her winery. She is part of the 1%. Her husband is an investment banker, they made alot of dough via the CBS reported insider trading of VISA stock in 2008, the Pelosis’ net worth has tripled in two years. In addition, she ripped off the workers at the Starkist canning plant on American Samoa in 2007 to benefit Del Monte which is based in San Francisco. I would guess they donate money to the lovely Ms. Pelosi. Oh, how about her not employing union workers at her winery and restaurant? Go get her zombies!

  66. Donald Duck says:

    Way to go Occupoop Oakland. San Fran deserves all of you, and I am sure you are welcome top stay as long as you like. In fact, maybe Granny Nanny will pay you a visit, after she confers with her stock broker. I heard she attended another committee meeting and got some hot tips.
