SF Police Raid Occupy Camp, Arrest 70

SAN FRANCISCO — Police raided the Occupy SF camp early today, arresting 70 campers and protesters at Justin Herman Plaza and clearing out the 2-month-old encampment.

Officers, sheriff’s deputies, firefighters and public works crews converged on the camp at the foot of Market Street at about 1 a.m. and gave protesters five minutes to clear out, said Officer Albie Esparza, a San Francisco police spokesman.

Most did, but 30 Occupiers did not, and another 40 were arrested when they blocked Market Street in protest, Esparza said.
