5:40 pm
break, but it turns out they were adding a new sign asking employees not to smoke in that area out of courtesy to the neighbors. that was easy. at marin general i am stanley roberts with kron4 news. i couldn't afford my health insurance anymore

6:02 pm
forward. they're talking about a strike that may be held next week. and the mayor may come out and speak about 6:00 p.m. we are keeping an eye out to see if that happens. the occupy oakland people are not too happy with her or the city after would have no the last couple of days. but the franco girl plaza--but the plaza has been we opened in jeff bush shows us what happened there. >>reporter: to date are running the protesters out of the plaza they were back with a tense and determination to stay. a new food distribution tent was set up and people were sitting around trying to figure out what to do next. cory was at the san francisco protest but decided to move to oakland to than his support. >> i was there since the 327. then i came here for

6:04 pm
skull. today his condition has been upgraded to fair, doctors say they he is now able to read on his own. his family is reportedly heading this way. we have a new pictures of him before he made the headlines during the protest. grant lodes is here with a look at those. >>reporter: this is just going to fuel the anchor of occupy protesters nationwide who think that got olson was wrongly injured. take a look, we have slowed the video down that is caught -- scott olsen right there. he is standing next to the man waving the flag. and there he is standing, the masses behind him are chanting and he is not even chanting he appears to be protesting peacefully and silently. he is pretty much motion this. you can understand why the
6:05 pm
occupy protesters across the country are holding vigils in his honor. >>pam: the occupy oakland protesters have gained national media attention and have put the mayor under heavy fire. we want to check it with j.r. stone for the latest. >>reporter: i am outside highland general hospital. as to what i am doing now here they had a press conference talking about scott olson and some of his injuries and how he is doing right now. they have upgraded his condition to fear. that is the good news. the city can move, he can sense think and communicate. the only thing that he cannot do at this point is talk to people. dr. spoke about his condition and this is what they had to say. >> he actually can communicate he can make signs and right he clearly understands what we are saying. it is a huge neurological improvement over what he was when he got
6:06 pm
here but he is still having trouble articulating words. right now that portion of his brain is not functioning well as his ability to speak. other than that he is functioning fine. we can communicate with him, his parents communicate with him. >>reporter: i can tell you that his parents are in town they came from wisconsin just outside of madison. they are not speaking with the media. the only other person that came to see him other than family members is mayor gene qwan she said she was sorry this happened in the work to see how this happened and something will be done about it. there are the a number of candles set up in the area for the
6:07 pm
vigil in oakland. they say a lot of his family members and friends could be there but at this point we have not spoken with any of those people. >>pam: the stoc--scott olson story and the occupy oakland protest has put a harsh light on the mayor. >> the mayor of any city is now on the front line for the cops and not everything they do can be laid at their feet. but one night of peaceful protesters executing their rights and not laws made for the cops and why the cops. if they are attacked with tear gas and rubber bullets and her only, is to commend it the police chief with the generally peaceful actions.
6:08 pm
she is endorsing this irresponsibility for what ever had it been out of control police officers have. the mayor has two choices as she can dismiss the acting chief and protest without harassment or having betrayed everything sheet support it and all those that have supported her she must resign. >>pam: we wanted to hear what the mayor had to say about keep oberland's stinging comments. she was criticized by other national commentators, the mayor who was under a recall threat has faced increasing criticism about the occupy protest. as teresa estacio found out today she was not interested talking about the controversy. >>reporter: here in oakland
6:09 pm

6:10 pm
effect. then she said that she was open to discussion. and then later there were these comments made. >> and we will have to take this situation day by day. >>reporter: in addition to trying to talk to the mayor, i also submit questions via e-mail to get clarification on her comments and the police actions but that went unanswered as well. >>pam: today the mayor of san francisco spoke to reporters about his plans to getting the tense taken down in justin herman plaza. it has been two weeks to the demonstrators moved in there currently there are more than 60 tents in that area. while the mayor says he is not backing down on the comments that he made yesterday he expects the city to enforce the laws prohibiting overnight
6:11 pm
