Please join use at Wilshire/Hope at 7pm tonight to rock against gentrification and the corrupt practices of the lobby group CCA. If you can’t make it tonight, please join us early tomorrow morning between 6am & 8am to protest the Economic Development Meeting and the downtown 2020 plan to build new high rises, the AEG Stadium and further criminalize and push out the homeless.
It was obvious that some sort of political shift occurred when it was learned that the City of Los Angeles would be assessed $58 million in fees if the Responsible Banking Resolution passed. The Central City Commission which includes heavyweights like Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Bank of the West, U.S. Trust and the Los Angeles Times made it clear that the message of protesters was not good for business in Downtown Los Angeles or anywhere else. So how does the CCA reward those that are subject to their “lobbying” efforts?
"The movement is at a crossroads," the mayor said. "It is time for Occupy LA to move from holding a particular patch of park land to spreading the message of economic justice and signing more people up for the push to restore the balance to American society."
