Occupy Freedom LA
Occupy L.A: Not dead yet, it seems.
Almost a year after the raid on Occupy's encampment at L.A. City Hall, the movement moves on -- this time targeting Deutsche Bank in Century City.

... failing to disperse, LAPD Officer Sara Faden told the Weekly.
The arrests outside Deutsche Bank at 2000 Avenue of the Stars were reported at 3:21 p.m., she said. Officers gave a "dispersal order" to demonstrators, she added.

Video shows that protesters put up yellow tape to block traffic; a few then sat down in the street in an attempt to stop the flow.
All the while a few dozen demonstrators chanted, "Hey-hey, ho-ho, Deutsche Bank has got to go."
Police put on their riot gear, got on a loudspeaker, and told the occupiers they had to go.
What's their problem with Deutsche Bank? Occupy says the institution has been foreclosing on American homes illegally.
