The Protest in Los Angeles


Today I visited the downtown "Shut Down LA" civil disobedience site. People from all walks of life were there demanding that corporate greed stop, that laws stop them from doing ANYTHING to hurt the environment, animals, the common person, our health, our integrity or our future as the human race. Dozens of tents were pitched on the LA City Hall lawn. A kitchen, meeting area, and media center were set up and alll was organized chaos, beautiful to behold. The leaders are discussing the actions agenda for weeks ahead–"we will stay til we get what we want" is the war-cry. Reportedly, the Los Angeles City Council is considering whether or not to support the protest. Unions will be marching in solidarity with the protesters tomorrow and Friday. More posts and pics later.
