The San Francisco Department of Public Works is giving Occupy SF protesters the opportunity this afternoon to pick up items that were confiscated during a police raid of the encampment at Justin Herman Plaza overnight.
A statement from the department said any belongings -- with the exception of tents -- that were left behind at the plaza can be retrieved between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. today at the DPW Operations Yard at 2323 Cesar Chavez St.
People are asked to enter the yard from the Kansas Street side.
The protesters can also pick up items between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Thursday and Friday.
One protester who was at the camp during the raid said it appeared many items were damaged or destroyed by city employees. David Ritchie, one of 70 people arrested during the raid, said he saw people's belongings put in a garbage truck and crushed.
Of the 70 people arrested in the raid, two were booked into jail on suspicion of felony assault on a police officer, while the rest were cited for illegal camping in the park after hours, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.
Occupy SF protesters have planned rallies for noon and 6 p.m. today in downtown San Francisco in response to the raid.
