Still waiting (updating below) for more details, but Qik.com vlogger Noel Hidalgo  is at the scene and giving updates  via Twitter. Here's a video he took just a few minutes ago not far from the Olympic bird's nest :
Noel has just finished uploading a second video, in which he reports that Chinese firemen have taken down one protester and one appears to be coming down the other pole; no sign of the third protester who was stationed on the ground as seen in the clip above:
