Oakland police have cleared the third and last anti-Wall Street protest encampment in the city.

Officers went to a small camp of about 10 to 15 tents at Snow Park shortly after midnight Monday and asked protesters to leave. All packed up and left peacefully, and police reported no arrests.

The Snow Park camp had been set up next to Lake Merritt as an alternative to the larger camp outside City Hall that drew the ire of city leaders and business owners for safety and sanitation issues. The City Hall camp was cleared on Nov. 14.

Many of those protesters then tried to set up another camp on an empty lot in downtown. But police quietly cleared them out Sunday after less than a day.
