    Meanwhile, Good Jobs LA, a coalition of labor unions and community groups that has organized marches with Occupy L.A., called on the mayor and City Council to allow the camp to remain where it is. Elected leaders should be more concerned about enforcing regulations on banks than enforcing park rules," spokesman Jacob Hay said. "They should be busy creating jobs, not creating conflict with peaceful protesters."

    On Thursday, Occupy L.A. released its first official statement (Which I Post Below) to the city, vowing to stay camped out on the lawn.

    Assembly-authored City response
    OccupyLA
    Written on 11/24/2011 by LAGAFC in Past, Proposal

    Para Todos Todo, Para Nosotros Nada: For Everyone, Everything, For Us, Nothing

    snip

    As a collective, Occupy Los Angeles would like to express their rejection of the City of Los Angeles’ alleged proposal that we leave City Hall by November 28th, 2011, in exchange for an apparently now rescinded offer of a 10,000 square foot building, farmland and 100 SRO beds for the homeless.

    snip

    The 1 percent should be paying for any services used by the Occupy Movement, not taxpayers.


    GRIEVANCES NOT ADDRESSED

    A moratorium on all foreclosures in the City of Los Angeles. The City of Los Angeles to divest from all major banks, and money to be removed from politics.

    A citywide effort undertaken to solve the homelessness problem which has led to 18,000 homeless people sleeping on Skid Row every night. Rehabilitation and housing must be provided for all homeless people.

    South Central Farm to be returned to the same LA community from which it was taken, and all other vacant and distressed land be open for the community use, and money to the tune of 1 million dollars – taken from Skid Row and given to a multi-million dollar NFL firm – to be returned to Skid Row.

    Los Angeles to be declared a sanctuary city for the undocumented, deportations to be discontinued and cooperation with immigration authorities be ended – including the turning in of arrestees’ names to immigration authorities.

    All forms of weaponry used by multiple law enforcement officials – including, but not limited, to rubber bullets, pepper spray, verbal abuse, arrest, foam batons, tear gas, long-range acoustic devices and more – are not to be used on those exercising their First Amendment Rights to petition our government for redress of grievances. We do not accept interference with freedom of the press and the public to document police actions in public spaces. We will not tolerate brutality.

    We assert our right to an open plaza on the South Side of City Hall for people to peacefully assemble, voice grievances, speak freely, hold our General Assembly and come to the people’s consensus 24 hours a day if needed.

    The City of Los Angeles to pressure the State to start a convention, as provided for in the Constitution, to remove corporate personhood and money from politics at a national level.

    The City of Los Angeles to begin a dialogue at the State and Federal level on the issues of student debt and tuition hikes.

    No cutbacks in city services or attacks on the wages, work conditions and pensions of city employees.

    A world class transit system which addresses our debilitating traffic problem and restores the quality of life in Los Angeles.

    We conclude, as a General Assembly, by hereby renaming City Hall Park - SOLIDARITY PARK

    And they wonder why they are not taken seriously by anyone other than the far left.:D

    Just a thought, you would have to scale it up a bit.

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Lets finally get to meat of the matter.

    OWS is not looking to create jobs, they want " Positions; A lot of money for not doing anything at someone else's expense.

    Los Angeles is a sanctuary city and has been for years. The authorities already don't cooperate. Pedro Espinosa was here illegally, no one notified any law enforcement agency, didn't have him taken into custody. In less than 24 hours, he murdered Jamile Shaw. The policy works as intended.

    I'm hoping the plan involves truckloads of pissed-off wolverines. But really, is there any other kind?
