Occupy Oakland protesters set up a new camp on a vacant lot in West Oakland that is in the foreclosure process, but the property owner said Tuesday they had moved in without her permission and that she wants them out.
“I have asked them to leave,” said Gloria Cobb, who owns the lot at 18th and Linden streets. “They won’t leave. I can’t afford to stop work and physically go down there.”
Activists had said Cobb gave them permission to set up their tents, but Cobb refuted that.
“No, it is not the case,” said Cobb, the sister of longtime activist and Oakland Post Publisher Paul Cobb.
