Southern California Joins Worldwide Wave Of Action

The Worldwide #WaveOfAction began Friday, April 4th at former Occupy sites around the world. Citing studies that “have proven that it only takes 3.5% of the population taking nonviolent action to create meaningful and positive change,” the originators of the idea have called for a three-month cycle of action beginning, symbolically, on the date of the assassination of Martin Luther King and ending, symbolically, on July 4, 2014.

In Southern California, rallies were held in Los Angeles, Westminster, Anaheim, and San Diego. A morning march from the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce to Congressman Xavier Becerra’s preceded a vigil for the “Robin Hood tax” (H.R. 1579). People rallied at City Hall at noon in solidarity with the #WorldWideWave with signs bearing messages such as “Normalize Tolerance” and “The resistance is here. You have been liberated.” Throughout the afternoon, Anonymous made appearances at the Los Angeles Police Department Headquarters, television filming locations, and with the Channel 4 news crew around downtown L.A.

People of Westminster, CA united for an all-day rally in Freedom Park honoring the civil rights legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Free food, screen printing, pageantry, and community spirit were present long into the evening.

The Anaheim, CA Wave of Action was called to bring awareness to killer police in Orange County as well as the rising numbers of homeless on the streets of America. Signs reading “Homelessness is not a crime” and “End Police Terror” were on display Friday evening during rush hour at the busy intersection of Harbor and Ball.

In San Diego, Civic Center Plaza was re-occupied for the day with a message of “Evolve, Survive, Thrive” and “UNITE in LOVE.” Simple but powerful messages including “Knowledge is Power,” “Disobey,” and “Freedom” were visible during the evening candlelight vigil in the public square.

The Southern California #WaveOfAction sites held a simultaneous candlelight vigil coordinated by livestream on Friday evening.

Wake up, get on the wave, and reconnect with humanity.
