City Council to Support Occupy L.A.


Councilmen Bill Rosendahl and Richard Alarcon introduced a resolution to support the Occupy L.A. participants today. “Occupy LA” has been happening at City Hall since Saturday and is Los Angeles’ response to Occupy Wall Street. Both protests are against irresponsible corporate practices.
