Rain is promised later in the week but today is a another beautiful Southern California day. Today should be especially interesting because it is the first regular week day for Occupy Los Angeles. City hall will be working, downtown will be bustling and the banks will be open.
The trial of Micheal Jackson's doctor also resumes today with all the international media coverage that befits a Hollywood show trial. Satellite trucks are parked all up and down the street just a few blocks from city hall and Monday's first action, at 6:00am was a march and rally in front of the courthouse. It was very effective. The Occupy Los Angeles story stole the lead from Jackson in the local morning news cycle.
Also Monday the protest camp was obliged to move from the south lawn to the north lawn so that a film production that has scheduled a permitted shoot on the south side of city hall you proceed on schedule. This is Los Angeles after all and they have their priorities.
This afternoon. a head of the evening General Assembly, Occupy Together is leading a march through the financial district to show solidarity with the protesters arrested on Wall St. Fortunately for us, the LAPD is determined not to repeat the mistakes on the NYPD and as a result many cops already see themselves as part of the 99%.
