It happened on Oct. 25, 2011 in downtown Oakland.
It was before dawn in California when the Police forces decked out in riot gear showed up and the Occupy Oakland encampment was evicted.
On Wednesday, Oct. 26, the protesters peacefully returned to Frank Ogawa Plaza and set up their tents once again.
This is what I witnessed on Oct. 27, 2011 at the plaza, as the protesters were slowly setting up their encampment.
This series on photographs was taken with an old Mamiya RZ67 and a few rolls of Ilford FP4.
