Protesters withdraw resolution to remain peaceful
OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- In Oakland, Occupy protesters gathered Wednesday night and voted to withdraw a resolution calling for future demonstrators to remain peaceful.
A small number of the protesters have openly called for the use of violence as a tactic to get their message out. The vote by the group came just hours after Oakland city leaders called for the camp at Frank Ogawa Plaza to shut down immediately.
City officials have also cut off streetlights at the camp as well as a faucet protesters had been using to get water.
Also Thursday, Oakland City Council President Larry Reid told ABC7 News that the council may take a "no confidence" vote for Mayor Jean Quan.
