Occupy SF Protesters Fight With Police In Justin Herman Plaza, Five Arrested (VIDEO)

Occupy San Francisco protesters and police clashed violently on Sunday night after protesters relocated the tent camp to Justin Herman Plaza in the Financial District.

Police informed protesters that they were not permitted to camp at the plaza, but protesters refused to remove the tents. According to, police then arrived in riot gear and removed the tents and loaded supplies into public works trucks. When protesters attempted to block the trucks, officers pushed back against the line and a physical shuffle ensued.

One protester was arrest for battery on a police office, while four others were arrested for resisting arrest.

Sunday's altercation followed a weekend of protests throughout the Bay Area including marches that drew 5,000 to San Francisco and 2,500 to Oakland. Monday marks the one-month anniversary of the Occupy Wall Street protests.
