BBC News describes clashes "between police and protesters" during November's night raid to dismantle the Occupy Wall St camp and a near media-blackout.

Eye-witnesses have reported otherwise, describing destruction by police of personal items, the dumping of the camp's library, and the use of pepper spray against peaceful resistors, rather than "violent exchanges".
Excerpt:
The [Occupy LSX] camp is closely modelled on Occupy Wall Street. Though it began a month later, it is still going almost a month after its New York counterpart was dismantled with violent exchanges between police and protesters.
