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:
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.
