LOS ANGELES, November 25, 2011 – The Mayor announced this afternoon that he is ordering the closure of Solidarity Park (formerly known as City Hall Park). Standing with police chief Beck the mayor said that closure of the park would begin at one minute past midnight this Sunday night.
Reaction from occupiers was shift, with chants of “Hell no. we won’t go” heard when the news reached the camp. One occupier is quoted has saying “They can shutdown our location, but they can’t shutdown the spirit of the movement”.
The Occupy LA encampment is now the largest last standing camp in the nation. There are about 450 tents at the camp now with a camp population estimated at near 500 campers.
At tonight’s general assembly there was much discussion on how best to respond and prepare for the eviction that now seems unavoidable. Break out groups divided by level of risk individuals are willing to take were formed and came back to the assembly with ideas.
The legal team presented a draft for the filing of a court injunction for a stay on the police raid. The legal argument based on constitutional rights as stated in the 1st amendment right to peaceable assemble and other rights granted by the 4th, 8th and 14th amendment. A full brief to be post on the Occupy LA web site. The general approved the filing for an injunction by the legal team.
Occupiers are now mobilizing in two main groups: those prepared to engage in non-violent civil disobedience to resist eviction and those who can not risk arrest but can provide support in other ways. Occupiers are asking supporters to come to the camp Sunday evening at 8:00 pm to help them defend the space.
