LOS ANGELES, October 7, 2011 , OccupyLA Day Seven. The encampment at City Hall continues to grow. The camp now numbers close to 100 tents with at least two occupants per tent. Rain on Wednesday failed to discourage the occupiers, and the encampment is now larger and more organized than ever. Tomorrow the camp will have completed its first full week. It has been an action packed week and has drawn much media attention even competing with the Jackson murder trial just down the street
Everyday there has been a march kicking off from the encampment to the financial district or a government building in the downtown area. Yesterday, Thursday, saw the occupiers teaming up with a group called Make Banks Pays for a march and a civil disobedience action at a Bank of America office. Ten arrests have been reported from Thursday’s action.
Today the camp was visited by Tavis Smiley and Dr. Cornell West who are in Los Angeles as part of their nationwide poverty tour. The camp has received support from the Los Angeles City Council in a resolution adopted on Tuesday. And unlike the police behavior in New York, San Francisco and other cities, the Los Angeles Police Department has to date been uncharacteristically restrained towards the protesters.
