PRESS RELEASE for Occupy San Diego Legal Team, Arrested Outlaw Occupella Singer Stephanie Jennings and other unlawfully arrested Occupiers
News Conference on Monday, 1/9/2012 @ 3:30 p.m. at Civic Center Plaza.

We have been hearing reports that occupiers from all over the country were flown to DC in the past week by numerous independent organizations in order to participate in the “Take Back the Capitol” rally, which has led to a National General Assembly. Unfortunately, The Occupy LA General Assembly never consented to be part of a National General Assembly, yet news outlets are claiming we are represented in DC. Let us be clear, WE ARE IN LA and have not granted authority to anyone or group to represent us.
Hundreds of police are currently being mobilized to raid the Occupy Los Angeles camp. Like last night, the turn-out at G.A. is enormous! Come occupy this liberated space and show LAPD what is meant by "public land".
We urge all participants and resistors to maintain non-violence. Anybody engaging in violent activity is not part of Occupy L.A.
