In the early hours of October 25, 2011, hundreds of police officers, armed with riot gear, moved in on Occupy Oakland protesters with the purpose of disbanding the two-week encampment in front of Oakland’s City Hall. Freelance photographer Jean-Philippe Dobrin was there to witness the action, including capturing smoke-filled air, protesters under arrest, and an aftermath that included a disheveled Occupy Oakland camp.
As of this report, 85 arrests had been confirmed by SF Gate.
Below, a series of photos captured by the photographer.
