The Occupation of Los Angeles - Part 1 - 9/17/2011
As everyone now knows, America has been occupied by a bunch of smelly people in sleeping bags. It all started on Sept. 17th, the "Day of Rage", when a rag-tag mob of nearly three thousand disgruntled Americans descended upon Wall Street, in lower Manhattan, to raise their voices in righteous anger against the evil bankers who gave them loans they couldn’t afford, and the Wall Street fat-cats and corporate CEO’s who are hoarding all of our money like Uncle Scrooge McDuck in underground vaults filled with mountains of golden coins.

The goal of the march was to "occupy Wall Street" and stay, camped out like Egyptians in Tahrir Square until their demands were met. The actual demands had not yet been agreed upon, but after a few "People’s Councils" and "Demands Committees" were held all that would be taken care of - and then the "banksters" and the "captains of greed" would have little choice but to concede to the demands OR ELSE!… Or else the rage-filled mob would sleep in the park until Thanksgiving, or even Christmas!

Other protests were scheduled in cities across the country so I found the Facebook page for the "Day of Rage" in my city of Los Angeles. I must admit, I was a bit surprised to find that whoever was in charge of this leaderless, organic revolution had chosen Olvera Street as the location for the Los Angeles "Day of Rage". For those of you unfamiliar with Los Angeles, Olvera Street is a quaint little cobblestone street and Mexican themed marketplace located on the original "Pueblo de Los Angeles". At the south end of Olvera Street is a circular Plaza adjacent to the old Mission de Los Angeles. This is where the "rage" was to begin.

Peaceful little Olvera Street was hardly the place to start a revolution, but what do I know about revolutions? On Saturday, the 17th of September I took the subway downtown. As I exited Union Station, and looked across the street I could see that the Olvera St. Plaza was filled with thousands of people!… As I got a bit closer I realized that what I was seeing was not a popular uprising, but a Mexican Festival - it was Mexican Independence Day! The organizers of the leaderless rebellion hadn’t checked the calendar. And to make things worse for the anti-corporate "Day of Rage" rebels, the entire plaza had already been "occupied" by evil corporations who had set up booths and kiosks promoting everything from soft drinks to banks.

People waited in long lines to receive free samples and coupons. Some of the evil corporations were even handing out job applications!

I looked for the "Day of Rage" occupation but couldn’t find anyone in the massive crowd who looked angry. Then I spotted something behind the kids in McDonalds coloring book booth.

There they were. The revolution had come to Los Angeles! VIVA LA REVOLUCION!!!

A rage-filled young man held up a bumper-sticker.

Within moments a group of Lyndon LaRouche cultists had set up a table with their infamous Obama/Hitler poster and were trying to convert the fiesta revelers.

To be generous I’d say there were 15 rage-filled revolutionaries on the plaza by the time the police showed up.

They were told that the Plaza had already been rented out by "the man", and that they would have to leave… Even the LaRouchies got the boot.

The small but determined band of revolutionaries made their way to the sidewalk behind the plaza and there they waved their signs and unfurled their banner for the passing traffic.

I must admit I felt sorry for them. To be helpful, I suggested to one young fellow who was barely old enough to buy a beer that they should take their march down to the financial district and plant their protest in front of one of those gleaming bank towers only about a mile across downtown. "I dunno. Maybe we should wait for someone in charge to get here", he said, squinting his eyes, "What if more people show up after we’ve gone?"

There couldn’t have been more than 20 of them when I left.

And so ended the first day of the revolution.
