Oakland has a new Occupy encampment.

The latest encampment sprang up in a vacant lot in west Oakland on Tuesday. It has more than a dozen tents, according to The Oakland Tribune.

Police have cleared all the city's previous encampments, including tents in front of City Hall. That site was cleared twice -- on Oct. 25 and again on Nov. 14. Three other encampments, two in lots and the other at Snow Park near Lake Merritt, have also come down.

Occupy protesters most recently forced the closure of much of the Port of Oakland. They blocked longshoremen from reporting to work for nearly 24 hours on Dec 12.
