Homeland Security cruises past the encampment.

Across the street is the OccupyLA encampment on the south lawn of City Hall.

It is what it is. Whatever that is.

Welcome to the kids' space.

  1. I've been supporting Occupy Seattle, though not camping out: I'm 76, and it's a lot colder and wetter here than in L.A. You inspire me to remember to take my camera tomorrow to photograph the tents here. There's not quite so many today as there were two weeks ago, when my camera's batteries gave out. Our mayor, like so many, ordered the occupiers out of a downtown square, But so far a local public college is letting them stay on the campus, where they are joined by our once-a-week farmers' market each Sunday. It makes for a fascinating conjunction of activists against corporate power. The one big sign that advertised the Hispanic presence has disappeared, alas. But there's huge support for the occupiers here, Not all the protesters are young, and most are well-educated, Of course, Seattle-ites are notoriously liberal!
