    perhaps one could say that the casual fellow-travellers have fallen back and away to re-assess their support for and commitment to the vision of Occupy LA.

    I know that I went through a brief period of intense depresssion after the camp was busted up in November. The May Day events helped restore me to a more even keel and gave me some balance. I suspect that depression is shared by more than one erstwhile supporter of OLA.

    But, from my perspective, OLA is all I've got. This government (city, state and federal) has largely abandoned me and my class and no longer gives one whit about us, save as cannon fodder for their war machines and profit centers for their economic output and exploitation.
