Police oust 'Occupy' protesters from San Francisco archdiocesan building-- again

Catholic World News - May 02, 2012

Early in the morning of May 3, police raided a building owned by the San Francisco archdiocese and evicted “Occupy” protesters who had seized the building the previous day.

For the 2nd time in a month, the “Occupy” protesters took control of the vacant property on Turk Street. Police reported that demonstrators had thrown bricks and pipes from the building, endangering people below. A police spokesman said he thought the same protesters were responsible for an earlier burst of vandalism in the city’s Mission district.
