Occupy Oakland: Protesters confront police downtown

October 26, 2011 | 11:40 pm


A crowd of Occupy Oakland supporters gathered late Wednesday near 11th Street and Broadway downtown, where they taunted police lined up on the street.

"Look what you did. We came back stronger," one person yelled, referring to the second gathering in as many nights in the area where violent clashes broke out Tuesday.

Then someone hurled a bottle, prompting cries from the crowd.

"You're endangering all of us," a woman yelled.

Police did not move.
