Frank Ogawa Plaza Is 100 Percent Free of the 99 Percent

After the Monday morning raid on Occupy Oakland, the city's downtown plaza is open to all the other taxpayers who want to use it — finally. Much to the relief of Mayor Jean Quan, who is still facing nonstop criticism and a potential recall, no squatters came back to pitch a tent last night on Frank Ogawa Plaza.

Instead, some 500 or so protesters met peacefully at the plaza for a

general assembly last night; they talked about plans for helping to reestablish the

Occupy camp in Berkeley as well as another citywide strike on Nov. 19.

That's not to say Oakland isn't still reeling from the effects of the five-week occupation, which resulted in two police raids, declining business, and a shooting death near the camp.
