After Occupying Pioneer Plaza and behind City Hall, protesters with "Occupy Dallas," came together Sunday evening.

Gone were the colorful tents, and protesters decked out in black held a candlelight vigil.

It was an act of solidarity after about 400 hundred protesters in Oakland, Calif. were arrested. Protesters became violent and tried taking over the YMCA in that city.

Batons were taken out as was an armored car, police fought to disperse the violent crowd.  Leaders say some vandalized Oakland's City Hall and burned an American flag.

Three officers and a protester were injured in the scuffles.
