Displaced Occupy Oakland Members Camp Out In San Francisco

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.

      ok–take care

    • lukuj

      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.

      • utwit

        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.

    • Buck Ofama

      who the fvck would want to visit oakland anyway?

      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!

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

    • John Steele

      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…

      • drphil69

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


    Who would of thought they would go to San FranSICKO

    • St

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

    • patty

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

    • freecheese

      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.

  • Michael Veramo

    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.

    • DJM3

      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

    • John Steele

      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

      • R Marshall

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

      • S Von Smith

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

    • Fred

      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!

      • R Marshall

        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.

      • Aunt Fiona

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

    • freecheese

      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 !

  • Mark

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

    • DJM3

      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?

    • 4sailing

      Occutantrum – love that! Perfect description.

    • MakeemStop

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

      • Andrew P.

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

    • Johnny5

      Nancy Pelosi the hags-been!

  • Marlene

    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.

  • Il Bui

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

  • Judy

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

  • James

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

    • Buckeye

      .. 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…

      • R Marshall

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

  • fecal_heroes

    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!

    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.

    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?!?!?!

  • Arthur

    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!

  • Diego Roswell

    Nobody cares.

    • Buck Ofama

      Ovomit cares.

  • Southbound Jones

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

  • Dave

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

  • Hawkdriver1961

    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…..

    • Beenaroundyaknow

      I’ll contribute a bus ticket

  • billybeer

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

    • Dave

      That is funny!

  • gaar

    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.

  • The Bruce

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

  • AL

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

  • caligula

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