On Wednesday, San Francisco supervisor and mayoral candidate John Avalos discussed the Occupy Wall Street movement on Keith Olbermann’s Current TV show, after 11 people were arrested for entering Wells Fargo’s corporate headquarters during a protest.

Avalos has been a supporter of the movement, issuing a statement of solidarity last week after police and city workers dismantled the protesters’ encampment outside the Federal Reserve building.
