11:55 Inside Bay Area reports every one of 200 eviction notices burned or destroyed in Oakland (see photo down the page a bit). But you can read full text here. Everyone subject to arrest if ignore orders and restrictions as of now. Police also trying to link man killed last night to camp.
11:50 Arrests at #OWS in St. Louis now….generator seized in NY by fire marshall.
11:00 Reuters: Injured Oakland vet Scott Olsen released from hospital. This is what two of his friends say. No word on condition.
10:55 Portland mayor debates a Portland occupyer on PBS NewsHour. Mayor has claimed another heroin overdose at the park. .. As expected, police have booted OccupyBurlington out of their camp after suicide of "transient" man there yesterday, claiming they cannot police themselves.
10:30 No idea if police will move on Oakland camp. See picture of people there burning eviction notice. But some question if order given on eviction or just order to make drastic changes with eviction to follow if no response…. Meanwhile Portland eviction just a day away. They are mobilizing support. Police claim they have seized rocks at the camp.
9:30 So much for smoothing the process.
@JoshHarkinson reports "a few people" grinding NY "spokes" meeting to a halt. Faction complains about whole concept and taking anything away from GA. Ends up making no decisions at all and many depressed by it.
9:05 Dreaded moment at hand? From Bay Area news outlet @CaliforniaBeat just now: "BREAKING: Oakland Police have issued eviction notices to the
#OccupyOakland camp ordering them to leave or be arrested." And "UPDATE: Small contingent of Oakland Police officers at #OccupyOakland camp; protesters refusing to leave Frank Ogawa Plaza." A livestream of GA there enow.
