Occupy camp in SF cleared, protesters arrested
SAN FRANCISCO -- Police made multiple arrests while clearing illegal Occupy encampments in downtown San Francisco late Wednesday night, a police spokesman said.
Occupy protesters camping out on the sidewalk in front of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco building at 101 Market St. were arrested for illegal lodging at about 11:30 p.m., police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.
Esparza said that police had been distributing leaflets to those camping in the area illegally in recent weeks to warn protesters that the encampments were not allowed and would be removed.
The Occupy encampment was completely cleared by 2:15 a.m. Officers have been instructed to remain in the area today to ensure that campers do not return, Esparza said.
