Police arrested 55 people in a raid on an Occupy San Francisco encampment in front of a Federal Reserve building early Sunday morning, days after clearing the protesters' main site about a block away.

Officers moved in to clear the latest encampment at about 4 a.m., Bay City News reported.

On Wednesday, 70 people were arrested as Occupy protesters were evicted from Justin Herman Plaza, where they had been staying since mid-October.

Occupy protesters have announced plans to shut down West Coast ports in a coordinated action on Monday.
