Oakland protesters hold late-night march as police erect barricades
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) ' Hundreds of anti-Wall Street protesters in Oakland filed out of a city plaza late Wednesday night and began marching down nearby streets.
A reporter at the scene says police have erected wooden barricades to block the march, but the protesters veered off as a group and continued down another street.
There were no signs of clashes between the two sides.
Earlier, Oakland officials allowed protesters back into the plaza outside City Hall where their 15-day-old encampment had been raided the day before, but said people would be prohibiting from spending the night.
It wasn't immediately clear how many of the protesters have remained in the plaza, which is now officially closed for the night.
