Occupy Oakland evicted at both sites

At around 5am this morning, Occupy Oakland was evicted from both Snow Park and Oscar Grant Plaza. At least one participant was shot with a "non-lethal" round from a shotgun after a bottle was thrown at the police. About 90 people in total were arrested. Right about now, Occupy Oakland is reconvening at the library at 14th and Franklin to decide their next steps. This set of photos was all over twitter after the raid.

On a brighter note, an artist in Los Angeles has done a beautiful series of oil paintings of banks on fire. The first elegantly entitled "Bank of America" and the second simply "Chase Burning."
