Los Angeles police raided the Occupy L.A. encampment at City Hall overnight, AP reports, arresting more than 200. By morning, the campsite was “in shambles,” according to the LA Times, “with tents uprooted and strewn all over.” Protesters reported that a treehouse at the site was being hit with rubber bullets or bean bag rounds early Wednesday.
In Philadelphia, police began clearing the Occupy encampment at Dilworth Plaza near City Hall in the early hours of the morning, and then arrested a group of roving marchers who left the site to march downtown. Occupy protesters have been settled into that encampment since Oct. 6, AP reports.
