Occupy LA press release -- October 7th, Dr. Cornel West visited the Occupy Los Angeles encampment now referred to by occupiers as "tent city”. Dr. West is to return tonight at 5pm to speak to the occupiers. He will be accompanied by Tavis Smiley.
"1% of the population controls 42% of the wealth. Something is wrong in America." Dr. West says, explaining the growing gap in the economic structure.
Downtown has MANY parking rules and regulations, so if possible, leave your vehicle at home and go Metro or plan to carpool with your fellow occupiers. Here's some parking/metro info to make your trek to the occupation as smooth (and inexpensive) as possible. If anyone has additional info, please let me know via the comments and I'll add it here.
