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.
Six people were arrested this afternoon for allegedly …
… 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.
