Police prepare to enter Occupy Oakland's City Hall encampment on Tuesday, Oct. 25, 2011, in Oakland, Calif. Police in riot gear began clearing anti-Wall Street protesters on Tuesday morning from the plaza in front of Oakland's City Hall where they have been camped out for about two weeks. City officials had originally been supportive of the protesters, but the city later warned the protesters that they were breaking the law and could not stay in the encampment overnight.

Some of the latest developments in the Occupy protests taking place in cities across the world:

CALIFORNIA

Police in riot gear cleared anti-Wall Street protesters from in front of Oakland's City Hall on Tuesday morning, leaving a sea of overturned tents, protest signs and trash strewn across the plaza. Hundreds of officers and sheriff's deputies went into the two week-old encampment with tear gas and beanbag rounds around 5 a.m., police said. Seventy-five people were arrested, mostly on suspicion of misdemeanor unlawful assembly and illegal camping. About 170 protesters were at the site, but no one was injured, according to police.

COLORADO

The first snowfall of the season is expected to arrive in Denver by Wednesday morning, but about 30 Occupy Denver protesters camped in downtown vow to remain in place. Forecasters warn that up to a foot of snow could fall in parts of Colorado. Protesters have received briefings on winter camping and have put a plan in place to check each other for signs of hypothermia. Still, protester Shannon Garcia was a bit concerned — she's three months' pregnant.

MASSACHUSETTS

A man and woman who had been living in the Occupy Boston tent city have been arrested for allegedly selling heroin to an undercover police officer. They were released after pleading not guilty to drug possession and distribution charges at their arraignments Monday. They also were ordered to stay away from the Occupy Boston encampment. Prosecutors say police set up a sting after learning of drug activity in the encampment.

NEW YORK

MTV says it will follow three young people on the front lines of Occupy Wall Street in New York City for an episode of its "True Life" documentary series. The cable network embedded its cameras over a two-week period to capture protesters' activities and explore what motivates them. The episode is scheduled to air Nov. 5.

ARKANSAS

Members of the Occupy Little Rock group have agreed to move from the Clinton Presidential Center to a city-owned parking lot to end the threat they'll be removed by police. The group voted Monday night after a visit from Little Rock police chief Stuart Thomas, who told the group that city ordinances prohibit them from camping in a city park.
