City to Reopen Plaza This Afternoon

Mayor Jean Quan told the Express this morning that the city plans to reopen Frank Ogawa Plaza by as early as 4:30 p.m. today. The mayor also said that if protesters from Occupy Oakland set up tents again in the plaza, then police will cite the demonstrators and remove the tents. “We’ll keep removing tents … like other cities have done,” she said. “We’ll take them down as soon as we can.” Oakland police also will monitor the plaza around the clock, although Quan declined to say how many officers will do so.
