Video: Occupiers break into City Hall, burn flag

Mayor Jean Quan condemned the local movement's tactics as 'a constant provocation of the police with a lot of violence toward them'

Police said about 400 people were arrested during Saturday's daylong protest — the most contentious since authorities dismantled the Occupy Oakland camp late last year.
