Today was such a great day in Southern California; I mean the weather was just about perfect it wasn’t too hot or too cold but that didn’t stop everybody from marching in downtown Los Angeles supporting the occupy LA protesting movement that’s going on right now. 65-year-old Roz Teller would’ve rather spent her day in her San Fernando Valley house instead of driving to downtown Los Angeles on such a beautiful Saturday morning. However she felt like it was her duty to join the hundreds of people already protect the painting in the occupy Los Angeles movement in downtown LA early this Saturday morning. The reason Roz and so many other people are doing this is because they are really ticked off at the Wall Street Mongols as well is the government not being able to implement enough checks and balances into the system which inevitably makes the rich get richer and keeps the poor people poor.
Roz also mention that she feels like where moving backward toward the Great Depression like we had way back in the 1920s. She mentions that more rigid regulation in our financial sector is needed and more programs need to be implemented to help the average working class and poor people and not the banks that already have all the money they can never want. The protest started at City Hall from an encampment and started moving toward spring street just after 10 AM. These protesters were carrying lots of different signs.
The signs were saying things like don’t pimp the politicians, buying is all that is asked of you, children wake up, billionaires your time is up, get out of Iraq and Afghanistan, for the common good, bye-bye Walker, we’re all walking into a global path autocracy, the thing worse than rebellion is the thing that causes rebellion, my pension is not the problem, I’m angry, how about a maximum wage, Bank of America sxxxs, Romney is the 1%, financial terrorist chase bank, make Wall Street pay, what about we the people, we are legitimate citizens United, wakey wakey, bank robbers in a whole bunch more signs.
Most of the protesters down here at the occupy LA March are younger people in their 20s and 30s who had been hanging around City Hall for the last couple weeks supporting the occupy Wall Street protest that’s been going on in New York City. The protesters in Los Angeles wanted to start gathering in Pershing Square so they can conduct a rally before they start moving further south toward the city of Los Angeles financial district. They also wanted to conduct a second anti-Greek protest, which is good to be started by the MoveOn group which should be taking place later today.
Teller took to the downtown area of Los Angeles with approximately 20 other members of Valley grassroots for democracy, which is a left type organization that is in favor of Democratic issues. Steve Krantz was 64 years old decided to join the march because the bankers on Wall Street lobbyist and all the politicians have done a terrible job supporting the middle class and have corrupted the political arena so that only the top 1% can benefit. Krantz is no dummy either, he’s a retired IBM executive and makes it clear that he still part of the 99% and that were to be in big trouble real soon some serious corrections in our country are not made.
