looking at the items of everyday living such as kitchen, cooking items, bicycles. the police chief was going through and seeing all the officers and how the operation went. this is when we found that pocket protest. the and mobilized almost immediately. the police remain in riot gear. as for imagine, an arrest was made about 15 minutes-30 minutes ago. as we mentioned. the sheer number of the oakland police officers that were in on and this have a basically decided that they are going to overwhelm frank ogawa plaza and the protesters that is exactly what they have done. for the most part many are out here
9:32 am
still. >>mark: jackie, thank you. a bit more calm. >>reporter: yes. we are looking at five hours ago this is how it went down. it was very quiet for earlier. however, off 45 minutes ago we saw some protesters the near abroad will/14 to. there were taunting police. near broadway/14 at that point the police made significant changes by moving and swiftly. arrests were made. protesters started stopping traffic. at that point the police decided that they had had enough and moved into broadway. they reopen to broadway. since then it has been
9:33 am
pretty quiet. we have seen a police walking around but for the most part it has been quiet. >>daria: where are the protesters going to demonstrate? the police have given them very little area. >>reporter: i can tell you they're not going to go back to frank a ogawa plaza. you saw video. that place is a disaster. it's a are going to move into that plaza and go through that entire thing and move out. perhaps they think that is a security issue in the one to make sure that that area is secure. where will those protesters go? that is a good question. most of the protesters have been arrested. perhaps they are addressing that right now with the meeting taking place in
9:34 am
the city hall with city officials and the police. >>daria: thank you, jackie. adjusting? >>reporter: new information from the poli--and advisement has ben sent out for city employees. they should be reporting to work in the next 30 minutes and abroad 10:00 p.m. please be ard by 10:00 a.m. and would save the issues they do not want you to enter frank ogawa plaza. again, city workers are requested to our drive to work by 10:00 a.m. also to bring your identification. and any other downtown employee can also report to work later to alleviate congestion.
