Occupy Oakland was celebrating Thanksgiving by sharing a meal and having a space that all could present their talents when a truck arrived to drop off portable toilets for the community. Officers were immediately on the scene and after about ten minutes the police asked the driver to leave with the portable toilets. The crowd was upset that on a day of celebration basic needs were not allowed to be delivered. Shortly afterwards an officer is seen tackling a citizen and another police officer helps push the citizen to the ground.
