Occupy San Francisco

Occupy San Francisco, Before spread the word of an impending Occupy SF police raid the camp at the south end of Justin Herman Plaza was largely an accident platform for people who are homeless, with a contingent of activists launched to promote the core message of the reporting of economic inequality.
Then came the attack that never came.
By midday Thursday, the sun shone on a camp completely transformed.
Suddenly, there were people who looked more like office workers walking hippies of the 50 tents on the concrete and grass. The tourists gave high-fives for the campers. A similar group of yoga instructors created a huge blanket and spent the afternoon meditating.
During the night, which went from Rainbow Nation redux a sort of cross between a demonstration against the war and a company picnic.
“It turns the whole world”
“I think last night everyone just energetic and have been passing the word that if you’re not here for the real protest, you may want to go somewhere else,” said John Tunui, a painter who manages dozens Artist of the street, next to the cabins of the camp. “It’s a different field.”
He and his fellow vendors complained as late on Tuesday that since SF set to occupy the place three weeks ago, people in the street had been dominating the field and the theft of their cabins. But Thursday, the problem was almost complete, Tunui said.
“We like his message, and I think we are learning to live together”, he said.
More than 300 protesters gathered Wednesday night after word spread through the camp that the mayor and the police would do well to clear warnings tents because of what it said were violations of sanitation and illegal camping. Before midnight, the protesters have been joined by a phalanx of union leaders and politicians, including two candidates for mayor, Supervisor John Avalos and State Senator Leland Yee.
Police with batons and helmets gathered near the square, and protesters girded for passive resistance. But never the raid.
