SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – San Francisco police arrested approximately 55 Occupy SF protesters for illegal lodging on the 100 block of Market Street early Sunday morning.

The protesters had set up an encampment in the area following last week’s raid on their camp at Justin Herman Plaza.

San Francisco police said that there were no injuries during the tense confrontation, although one officer was spit on and another was pushed by demonstrators.

Riot police moved in on the camp around 4 a.m.

Police said the group was given hourly advisements of illegal lodging and would be subject to arrest for the last 24 hours.

The group said they plan to regroup and would be back at the site.

    > 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 respect and admiration are with Occupy and with the Anonymous, Wikileaks and Ruckus brigades. Thank you heroes for all of your service.
    For they know, proletariat’s bad children and parasites, sic Zionist apparachiks of the Fed, IMF and World Bank, 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, lest the streets flow with blood.
