www.democracynow.org - The raid in New York City came one day after police officers cleared the Occupy Oakland encampment in California and arrested 32 people. Two prominent members of Oakland Mayor Jean Quan's team have resigned over the past day. Hours before Monday's raid, legal advisor to the mayor's office Dan Siegel resigned to protest the city's crackdown on the Occupy movement. Last night, Deputy Oakland Mayor Sharon Cornu also stepped down. "I am horrified as to what happened in Oakland yesterday and in New York today," Siegel tells us during our live broadcast. "The people who are working for these mayors and police and so on are doing Wall Street business for them, and we need to stand up against it."
