The push-back on the economic crisis from the working class and the left has now reached the West Coast.

The nearly two-week-strong movement called Occupy Wall Street — a call to arms to point fingers at bailed-out investment bankers for the real estate meltdown and subsequent Great Recession — reached downtown L.A. over the weekend.

The turnout was less than rousing:

The blog LA Activist says about 70 protesters showed up Saturday outside City Hall. And if you're in L.A., class warfare is really about Trader Joe's vs. Whole Foods (we kid).

According to LA Activist:

… Protesters are expressing their displeasure with Wall Street greed, corporate influence in politics and the overbearing power of the super-rich over ordinary Americans.

The local demonstration was called Occupy L.A., and apparently more are planned. So look out Wall Street rich folk: 70 people 2,500 miles away don't like you.
