In a meeting this afternoon with the Mayor City Administrator and Chief of Police, business leaders expressed support for the Oakland Police Department and told Mayor Quan they would hold her responsible for a peaceful and successful resolution to this encampment.  They told her that businesses are suffering, sales off 40 % - employees, customers, clients afraid and harassed.  Businesses not coming to Oakland as a result of the lawless encampment.

The Message - if the situation is to improve we need to Speak up!  Tell the Mayor and Council they must protect public safety and health. Enforce the law.

The encampment must be closed.  Protestors should of course be allowed to meet in a lawful, orderly way to convey their message.

Do we want jobs or the encampment?  Which better serves the needs of the 99%?
