Police and protesters clash in California as officials order the Occupy:Oakland movement to clear out.
Officers fired tear gas and stun grenades into the crowds after the protesters refused to leave the park.
For the past two weeks, hundreds of people have camped out in front of City Hall, making it hard for officials to go about doing their job.
Several officers and protesters suffered minor injuries. So far, no word on how many arrests were made.
