Occupy Los Angeles

The Occupy Wall Street movement is spreading, and cities like Chicago and Los Angeles are stirring in solidarity with their brothers and sisters in New York City.

Daniel Bluemel writes:

A movement, similar to the “Occupy Wall Street” demonstration occurring in New York, is building in Los Angeles.

Today, protesters hit the streets of downtown to spread the word of their crusade. Later they joined a rally in front of City Hall with the environmental group 350.org. Approximately 70 activists attended.

Void of any discernible ideology or politics, and comprised mostly of youths, protesters are expressing their displeasure with Wall Street greed, corporate influence in politics and the overbearing power of the super-rich over ordinary Americans.

At the core of the movement is a criticism of the state of American democracy, which some call a plutocracy, or even a “corporatocracy.”

You can follow Occupy L.A.’s events and planning here. We’ve already missed the event tonight, but there are more peaceful demonstrations in the works.
