Occupy LA camp grows as eviction threat looms

November 28, 2011 10:29

LOS ANGELES - Hundreds of anti-Wall Street protesters who have camped outside Los Angeles City Hall for weeks braced on Sunday for a midnight eviction deadline as supporters rallied to the scene in a show of solidarity.

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has said that Occupy LA protesters would be given until just after midnight to dismantle their tents, pack up their belongings and clear out of the City Hall park, or face forcible removal.

Police, who had kept mostly out of sight during the day, began to make their presence known as the eviction deadline neared, and the mood of the protesters, which had remained calm and celebratory through the night, turned edgy and intense.
