8:50 More shocking news: Protesters pepper-sprayed at Albany march today after evictions (which I covered below with link and livestream). AP reports says one copy sprayed from horseback. Unconfirmed report has one victim as 15-year-old girl. Tonight local paper reports: "In a news conference in the park, several members of the group who said they had been pepper sprayed expressed outrage to the media. City Councilman Dominick Calsolaro was also sprayed. Another woman spoke with her eyes closed, her face coated in a white film she said was milk of magnesia to soothe the spray. One woman who was sprayed seemed to suffer a seizure afterward and was taken away in an ambulance."
6:45 Graphic video of San Diego arrests at camp last night, folks seized and manhandled for apparently no reason, and then video guys jumps in.
5:50 Update, livestream below, cops attack marchers in Albany, seize tent, arrests and someone hurt.
5:25 Wash Post report on incident at OWS camp there today–police called about drunk man assaulting woman–and other drunks there –man resisted arrest and was tasered, which got Occupy crowd upset. Cop injured and taken to hospital. Apparently "isolated" incident but such incidents have sparked other city crackdowns.
