Occupy LA Protest Eviction Sparks Arrests
The ‘Occupy Wall Street’ protest has reached every corner of the United States. People who are protesting corporate gains (which are chalked up to greed) and feel that the lower class is getting left behind, comprise most of the people sitting for weeks and months at a time in public parks and monuments.
Authorities have begun to evict these protesters from these landmarks. The protesters are fighting back and ending in arrests. There have been reports of violence and rape in these ‘Occupy’ camps. In Los Angeles these protesters were camped out on the City Hall lawn and have ended in their arrest.
Officials stated that there is no real intention to evict people from City Hall, they just wanted to clear the roads for commuters.
