Occupy Wall Street protesters who defied a deadline to remove their weeks-old encampment on the Los Angeles City Hall lawn stood their ground Tuesday as they faced uncertainty over when or if police would push them out of the park — and if an eviction could happen without the kind of violence that has engulfed the removal of protest sites in other cities.
For now, Wall Street protesters camped out on the Los Angeles City Hall lawn still have their tent city after defying a deadline to pack up and clear out. "Still occupied," read the sign of a protester up in a tree.
Riot-clad law enforcement officers cleared out Oakland's weeks-old anti-Wall Street encampment just before dawn Monday, arresting Occupy demonstrators and removing tents from a downtown plaza after issuing several warnings over the weekend.
One of the more curious aspects of the "occupy" movement has been its obsession with the military. The demonstrators keep trying to convince the public that the troops are on their side. On Nov. 2, people claiming to be veterans staged a march through Wall Street. Periodic rumors sweep the twittersphere that "the Marines are coming!" to protect protesters from law enforcement. Pro-military sentiment is clearly not unanimous, however. Last month, two Occupy Boston stalwarts spat on and threw a water bottle at a female member of the Coast Guard. Brave souls - try that with an infantryman and see what happens.
The second Iraq war veteran hospitalized after a confrontation at an "Occupy Oakland" protest wasn't participating in the demonstration when he was injured and arrested, a friend and colleague said Saturday.
Veering around police barricades, anti-Wall Street protesters held a late-night march through Oakland streets, a day after one of their number — an Iraq War veteran — was left in critical condition with a fractured skull following a clash with police.
Police guarded newly cleared plazas early Wednesday in Atlanta and Oakland, Calif., after clearing Occupy Wall Street protest camps in both cities. Dozens of demonstrators were arrested in swift crackdowns by riot squads after local authorities lost patience with the rallies.
