Occupy LA Plans Big March on 11-11-11: In New York OWS is Taking Over Central Park That Day
Occupy Los Angeles
Some people are banking on a good luck day as the strange date 11-11-11 hits tomorrow. Folks are even reportedly flocking to Las Vegas for quickie marriages.
In L.A. they'll be protesting in the streets again. Following Wednesday's citywide actions against banks -- from a sit-in in the middle of the Wilshire-Westwood intersection to the takeover of a downtown Bank of America -- the Occupy massive will be at it again.
This time there will be a march from ...
... City Hall to the Financial District (again).
They're gathering at -- you guessed it -- 11:11 a.m. The marchers take off at 12:30 p.m.
Will there be the kind of disruption seen at the California Plaza B of A Wednesday afternoon, when hundreds of protesters showed up and more than a few embedded themselves inside (and at least one tent was pitched)?
Who knows. But the Occupy nation seems to be making the most of the anomalous date: In New York Occupy Wall Street plans to take over Central Park.
