Nurses Jump on Quan for Response to Occupy Oakland, Too

Add one more to the list of organizations condemning Mayor Jean Quan’s forceful eviction of the Occupy Oakland protesters in Frank Ogawa Plaza: The California Nurses Association. It issued a statement today that aligned Quan “with mayors like Chicago’s Rahm Emanuel and other cities whose response to public expression of protest is repression rather than respect for the rights of free speech and assembly,” in the words of CNA treasurer Martha Kuhl. According to Occupy Oakland organizers, arrestees from the pre-dawn raid are being held until their Thursday arraignment, and jails are reporting $10,000 bail.
