VAN NUYS, CA, Oct 15—In what can only be understood as continued harassment on behalf of
banks and retaliation for resistance, LAPD cruisers and a Department of Sanitation truck lined the street outside the Hernandez family’s Van Nuys home this afternoon and declared that furniture and a temporary wooden barricade on the property are violations of city sidewalk ordinance 56.11. The Hernandez family, facing imminent foreclosure, currently have proceedings pending before the court for two earlier 56.11 citations, noting that there are no sidewalks in front of their home and no immediate threat to public health or safety. The Hernandez family has erected the ten-foot barricade in symbolic protest of their impending, fraudulent eviction by Bank of America with the help of neighbors, the Occupy Movement, and other grassroots groups.
With one year under their belt and the group just getting their walking feet, there is a two day celebration this weekend commemorating the 1 year anniversary of 1000 people coming out last year in support of the occupy movement. The group spent their first night last year at Children’s Park before moving a 100 tent encampment to the Civic Center the next day. The group experienced their first two raids Oct. 14 and Oct.
We invite all supporters, participants, agitators, the dreamers, the critical, the cynics, and all who seek a better more egalitarian world to join us for the one-year anniversary weekend of Occupy Los Angeles to stand united in our shared struggles. Please share amongst all the people for the most organic participation possible!
