Participants of Chalk Walk say the City has two Sets of Rules for them and others
LOS ANGELES – City Hall Park opened Thursday morning with the Mayor, Antonio Vallaraigosa, and LAPD Chief, Charlie Beck, who spoke to an invite-only crowd from the grass just west of the south steps at LA City Hall.
Each spoke from a podium with a microphone, two large speakers, and a genitor powering the amplification about 20 feet away from a new sign that specifically says “no generators or sound amplification”.
Member of the public, including Occupy Los Angeles participants, were kept out of the park until the Mayor and Chief finished speaking. However, they were able to take photos of the sign with the generator in the back ground and of the podium with microphone and speakers on the grass.
