LOS ANGELES, June 13, 2007 – One year to the day after the forced evictions of the South Central Farmers from their land by a small army of Sheriffs and LAPD the farmers held a reunion in the streets outside the now barren land.
Farmers and their supporters filled the eastern most block of Martin Luther King Street for a rally and street party that lasted well into the night. The farmers remain committed to their struggle to for the land and despite the displacement from their land they continue to find ways to provide the poor of South Central with fresh fruits and vegetables.
One year later there is no warehouse on the site and no signs of any construction. Prompting many to ask, what was the hurry to evict the farmers. It is rumored that the real estate investor, Ralph Horowitz, who destroyed the farm can not find buyers for land and is losing money for every day the land sits unused.
There are unconfirmed reports that about 30 people reoccupied the land in the late night hours and spent the night on the land. No uniformed police or squad cars were seen at this event. There were a few suspect undercover agents from unknown agencies believed to be spying on the event but other than that no incidences with police have been reported.
