Editor’s Note: After weeks of mostly peaceful demonstrations as part of the Occupy Oakland movement, police clashed with protestors last night, hurling tear gas into the crowd. Tensions rose early Tuesday when hundreds of police dismantled protestors’ encampment at civic center plaza. Two police officers were reportedly injured, while 102 people were arrested yesterday, local media reported. Jean-Philippe “J.P.” Dobrin is a San Francisco-based photographer and filmmaker.
