OK, some chick gets up there, gives a speech-repeat speech thingy about volunteering for arrest and working for peace or something. Then she gives the devil horns with her fingers. ??:confused:

Ok, now some guy with a pronounced speech impediment is speaking. Everyone's repeating him. :D

"I see a lot of love here."

and

"You screw us, we multiply."

(Are they rabbits?) :)

Also,

"We're birthing a new world here."

Some of the protesters were saying the police were lining up, and news vans arriving more and more.

If it was like the last time, should be around 1 AM for the police to move in. The police have been doing some small level raids as well as intimidation moves on the protesters to keep them off guard. But nothing major.

You see the protesters "Medical Unit"? 4 dirtbags that look like they haven't shaved and looked like they sucked down all the meds them selves.

LOS ANGELES (CBS) Occupy L.A. protesters are preparing for a standoff with police.

A large crowd of protesters have congregated on the City Hall steps and lawn, braced for police officers who, in the last few hours, have been apparently preparing to move demonstrators out.

The LAPD has announced that they are on tactical alert across Los Angeles.....

Occupy Philly leaves City Hall after police arrive

By Miriam Hill, Melissa Dribben, and Troy Graham
INQUIRER STAFF WRITERS

Occupy Philly leaves City Hall after police arrive - 2:02am


Police swarmed Dilworth Plaza a little before 1 a.m. Wednesday, ordering Occupy Philadelphia participants to disperse more than 48 hours after a city-imposed deadline came and went.

No arrests were immediately reported.

Police gave protesters three warnings that they had to leave the plaza. After the third warning, 15 of them locked arms and started walking south on 15th Street. They were blocked by police at 15th and Walnut but made their way to Rittenhouse Square, where they sat down inside the park and chanted and asked police not to obey the "unjust orders" of "the 1 percent."

After five minutes of chanting, they got up and walked down Locust. About 1:45 a.m., 20 to 30 protesters were gathered at 17th and Spruce, chanting: "Get up, get down, there's revolution in this town."

In an early morning news briefing, Police Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey said: "Our goal is to try to avoid arrests. . . . We want to try to minimize any conflict. So it just made sense to do it early in the morning, when the businesses are closed." He said police would remain on the scene "as long as we have to."

It was the end of the first, and possibly final, phase of Occupy Philadelphia, a movement that spread here from Wall Street as thousands of people across the country pitched tents in public places to protest growing income inequality and a host of other problems......

84. LAPD fires shots from less-lethal weapon at treehouse protesters Shots heard on OakFoSho's livestream and on KTLA-5's live coverage. Both say it sounds like shots from 'less-lethal' weapon (rubber bullets or beanbags).

One of treehouse protesters now in custody, handcuffed and on the cherry-picker the police call the 'BatCat.'



AAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

The LA occupy is going to cost a fortune. Not only the grass but the entire irrigation system has been destroyed. The site is being treated as a biohazard site.

LAPD was remarkably restrained. I watched the footage from OakFoSho (nothing like a white suburban guy with a very expensive HD night vision digital video camera trying to sound like he's down with the 'hood. :D). The raid itself began closer to 1 am, and Occupy was given 45 minutes after the initial police arrived to get out. Even the professional activists that made up the core of Occupy (or as John and Ken of KFI call them, "Occu-poo") announced to the group "now is the time to get out if you don't want to be arrested."

It was clear from OakFoSho's video that the activists were ready with their chants and their strategy. They knew how to intimidate the police: Oak was shining his camera on all the cops and stating their names for the record. So many Hispanic cops out there, BTW. Not exactly the white banker man holding the people down. More like working class Latino guy trying to earn money for his family in a life-risking job while spoiled little white kids from the suburbs with dreadlocks and bongos pretend to be oppressed.

Make no mistake: the core of Occupy is professional activists. They know what they are doing. The only question is what their goal is and who they're working for. Someone is paying for the night vision cameras, the military grade tents, the two months of food, the lawyers (from the guild) and their salaries, etc. This is an expensive operation and they are not going away. I also think they have some power over the mayors who seem powerless against them. It took Homeland Security to synchronize those raids last night in LA & Philly. It shouldn't have taken that. All I can figure is that this movement is being run by someone who made these mayors offers they couldn't refuse...

Occupy L.A.: 30 tons of debris left behind at City Hall tent city

Sanitation officials said Wednesday that they expect to haul away 30 tons of debris from the Occupy L.A. encampment –- everything from clothing to heaps of garbage to oddball curiosities left behind by the protesters who lived at the City Hall tent city for two months.

Andrea Alarcon, president of the city Public Works board, said workers already have removed 25 tons of belongings from the City Hall park, all of it heading straight to a landfill.

Sanitation crews also have vacuumed up about 3,000 gallons of water that had washed into a catch basin in recent days and are testing it for hazardous materials, she said....

You know LA is already broke. It's only going to get worse and these filth spreaders are now going to cost over a million dollars. (Guess whose taxes will have to go up to pay for this crap. :rolleyes: )
They are already handing out tons of parking tickets minutes BEFORE the meters run out. :mad:

I want to sue Occupy for expenses. Why don't any of these mayors sue them for clean-up?

Not an LA funny, but still funny.

CNN just had on, that now with their park shut down. They now have bought an office space on Wall Street. And are now putting people to work there organizing their group.

All volunteer, no pay. Said some people are actually quitting their jobs so they can work there free 12+ hours a day. Living on their savings alone.

I do not understand the appeal of living in a public health hazard. I also don't understand why they couldn't have been run out on a rail beforehand.

Bunch of them are still in jail though. :D
