At least 3 detained at Bernie Sanders rally

OAKLAND (KTVU & BCN)— At least three people were detained at a Bernie Sanders rally in Oakland on Monday afternoon. 

The incident occurred around 5:30 p.m. as Sanders was speaking at a rally at Frank Ogawa Plaza in front of Oakland City Hall in the heart of downtown Oakland. 

The people arrested were apparently part of an animal activist group called Direct Action Everywhere. 

Further circumstances surrounding the incident have not been released. 

Democratic presidential hopeful Sanders spoke at two events in Oakland on Monday.

Earlier in the afternoon Sanders joined actor Danny Glover and San Francisco Supervisor Jane Kim for what his campaign described as "a community conversation" at Allen Temple Baptist Church at 8501 International Blvd. in Oakland.

Sanders will also hold rallies in Santa Barbara, Santa Maria and Bakersfield on Saturday and in Visalia and Fresno on Sunday.

His campaign says that in all of his events in California over the long Memorial Day weekend Sanders "will discuss a wide range of issues, including getting big money out of politics, his plan to make public colleges and universities tuition-free, combating climate change and ensuring universal health care."
