Officials want Occupy LA protesters off lawn
Hey you kids, get off my lawn!
DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES (KABC) — Protesters have been camped outside Los Angeles City Hall for two weeks, and some local leaders say it’s time for them to move out.
Occupy Los Angeles protesters against corporate greed have pitched tents on the north and south lawns.
Hundreds have joined the group since it set up camp with the city’s blessing. But some city officials said with damage to the lawn, among other problems, it is time for Occupy L.A. to go.
“They’ve made their statement. I agree with their statement, but it is time to move on. The trees are in the process of being impacted. The grass is being impacted. Other activities that we need to do on the lawns are being put on the back burner,” said Councilman Bill Rosendahl.
