More than a thousand marchers join Occupy Oakland protesters in their attempts to occupy 19th and Telegraph streets and call it their new home. They marched throughout Oakland streets Saturday, stopping for a period of time near the Grand Theater.

7 p.m.: Oakland police put out press release

Police said that there have been no arrests, citations, vandalism, uses of force or injuries. They said the following streets were closed:

19th Street between Broadway and San Pablo

William Street from Telegraph Avenue to San Pablo

Rashida Muhammad Street from 19th to 20th

The city reinforced its position that "lodging will not be permitted."

6:45 p.m.: Rain pours down, crowd dissipates

With about a dozen tents staked in the vacant lot, the skies opened up and rain pelted the crowd which quickly thinned to a couple hundred.

Still, a truck with speakers in the back blasted music and demonstrators danced, passed around glow sticks and chanted.

Police presence still kept their distance.

5:40 p.m.: Marchers tear down fence

More than a thousand Occupy Oakland protesters tore down a cyclone fence around a vacant city-owned lot at 19th and Telegraph streets and claimed a new encampment.

"More tents! More tents!" one protest organizer yelled through a sound system.

Police presence was minimal.
