A small group of protesters taking part in today’s day of action are being escorted out of the California State Office Building in San Francisco’s Civic Center.

San Francisco protesters gathered at the State Building earlier this afternoon to hold a teach-in and occupation as part of the “National Day of Action to Defend the Right to Education,” organized by students and members of the Occupy movement.

Most of the San Francisco protesters moved on to rally at Civic Center Plaza but a small group of protesters stayed behind to occupy the building.

At around 6:30 p.m. officers gave an order to disperse and a short time later protesters were led out of an inner room in handcuffs and most appeared to be cited and released, according to a live stream video.
