Oakland Mayor Jean Quan Admits 18 Cities Were Consulting on #Occupy Crackdowns

Rumors have been swirling around various Occupy camps that a series of major crackdowns in recent days — spanning from New York to Denver to Oakland, with several others in between — were being done on the orders of Washington. That’s unlikely.

But in an interview with BBC News, Oakland Mayor casually admitted that she had participated in a conference call with officials from 18 cities to discuss the OWS movement, tactics for managing its camps, etc.

The interview is excerpted in this episode of The Takeaway — at about 5:30.

It’s unclear whether they “coordinated” the recent raids, but it’s an intriguing tidbit. I’ve reached out to a source and will update this if/when I get more.
