Well, that didn't last long. Less than 48 hours after Occupy Oakland had returned with a new camp, pitching more than a dozen tents in West Oakland, police dismantled the encampment, removing squatters who had just made themselves at home.

According to the Chron, police were instructed by the property owner to get rid of the Occupiers, who began occupying the site at 2000 Peralta on Tuesday. Protesters moved in on the site, naming it the "Cypress Triangle" and deeming it a "winter safe haven" for protesters and homeless folks.

However, police moved in on the camp at about 5 p.m. Wednesday, citing protesters for trespassing and arresting one for not showing ID, the Chron reports.

Property owners said they had asked the protesters to pack up and leave peacefully -- and when that didn't work, they called Oakland police, who wasted no time removing the camp.

We're excited to see what protesters will occupy next.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
