This video was taken a little after midnight at the Frank Ogawa Plaza in downtown Oakland. The police fired tear gas canisters and flash grenades into a crowd to separate it from the main group. A confrontation ensued but police never raided the camp. As the tear gas filled the air, it became increasingly difficult to keep shooting. The protesters continued their civil disobedience past 3 am and police arrested an undetermined number of protesters. Overall, the protest remained peaceful but a small group of young people vandalized property and vehicles.
