The Occupation of Los Angeles - Part 6 - 10/15/2011
The Global Day of Action
On Saturday, the 15th of October, I took the subway downtown to check out the Occupy Los Angeles "Global Day of Action" march. Everyone was supposed to meet at Pershing Square by 12 noon. I was late. When I arrived, I could see the tail end of the march turning off 5th St. and heading up Bunker Hill to the financial district.

I quickly caught up and joined the angry throng.

One of the first people to catch my eye was a young man in an American flag Speedo, using an umbrella as a walking stick and chatting on his cell-phone.

I’m sorry to say that the march was quite large. I’m not good at estimating crowd sizes, but there must have been a few thousand people at the very least - probably more.

Check this video to get a taste of the crowd…

The primary messages were anti-Capitalist, anti-greed, anti-corporations, anti-bank and anti-rich people. Many signs called for "revolution", and images of Communist revolutionary, Che Guevara, were commonplace.

I saw numerous purple SEIU shirts scattered among the demonstrators.

But unfortunately, the union most represented throughout the march was the United Teachers of Los Angeles (UTLA).

I moved along with the march as we worked our way back to the Occupation Camp at L.A City Hall.

I think this guy was accusing the U.S. of becoming a Feudalistic society, but maybe he was advocating Feudalism - it’s really hard to say for sure. After all there were people there advocating Communism, Socialism and Anarchism, so why not Feudalism?

This fellow decided to gratuitously incorporate penises into his sign for no apparent reason.

Forgiving student loan debt is a popular theme among many of the protestors.

I can’t for the life of me figure out why so much anger is pointed at the banks who offer the loans, rather than at the universities that charge such outrageous tuition to attend.

This guy is a protest regular around Los Angeles. Usually he waves a sign that says "Globalize the Intifada! Workers of the World Unite!", but on this day his message was for the police.

I noticed quite a few signs featuring John Lennon quotes. Especially popular were lines taken from Lennon’s feel good ode to communist Utopianism, "Imagine".

The sign above the stroller in the picture below reads "Babies for income re-distribution".

Which brings us to our next picture: I took this one as we approached City Hall. It’s a picture of a young girl about 6 or 7 years old who was seated atop her father’s shoulders holding a sign featuring a hand-drawn American flag with the Star of David replacing the usual five pointed stars.

Is this sign intentionally anti-Semitic? Was it drawn this way at the behest of an adult? Or, is it merely the way this little girl draws stars? I don’t know the answer.
For context, here is another picture of the same girl facing a different direction, in which other demonstrators can be seen.

Recently, photographs and video have emerged revealing an anti-Semitic bias among some Occupy Wall St. and Occupy L.A. demonstrators. Because of this I had my eyes open for any imagery or messages that might betray an anti-Jewish prejudice. Shortly after photographing the girl in the picture above, I spotted this placard…

Now, let’s have a closer look at the neck tie that Senator Lieberman is wearing in this photo-shopped image.

And Obama’s tie and lapel pin.

This sign is clearly promoting the age old conspiracy common on both the far fringes of the Left and the extreme Right, that Jews - particularly, "cabals" of Jewish bankers - secretly control the world.
As I walked through the encampment I also snapped a shot of this sign, promoting the same anti-Semitic conspiracy of "cabalistic bankers" controlling the world.

This sign was actually at Occupy L.A. the weekend before as well, when I photographed another sign specifically naming Jews, and Freemasons as the evil villains of history.

Other than the typical anti-Israel / pro-Palestinian stuff you find at every Left-wing protest, I didn’t see anything else overtly anti-Semitic.

Although there were, of course, many people sporting the traditional Palestinian Keffiyeh, which is a symbol of solidarity with the enemies of Israel.

But anti-Semitism is only a small part of what concerns me about the Occupy Movement. What worries me even more is the revolutionary rhetoric and Utopian zeal of so many of the protesters.

As the march reached the encampment, people gathered on the steps and in the street in front of City Hall, chanting and screaming.

This video offers a little taste of the atmosphere.



In the following video you can hear a fully radicalized young woman probably no older than 18 or 19, yet well trained in the art of political agitation, firing up the crowd.

There were thousands of people at this demonstration, and the most popular speaker of the day was a man named Peter Joseph. Joseph is a filmmaker and the founder of the "Zeitgeist movement". If you are unfamiliar with the Zeitgeist movement I strongly suggest you familiarize yourself.

bottom left shadow bottom right shadow
The Zeitgeist movement is a Utopian world-view based on American futurist Jacque Fresco’s Venus Project. It’s really nothing more than Communism re-packaged in New Age language, promising a new world without money, or private property, in which everyone shares everything - a world free of want, free of greed, where decisions are made "scientifically". Joseph promises that some day most labor will be done by machines and robots, leaving humans to pursue art and music or pure pleasure. The Zeitgeist movement is far more popular than most people realize.
Peter Joseph was received like a rock star when he walked on stage.

Please take the time to listen to his speech. The hands held up with wiggling fingers is what they call "twinkle-up". This is a sign of approval in the new sign language of the Occupiers.

When you hear someone advocating a "resource based economy", you’re talking to a follower of the "Zeitgeist movement".

Now, in no particular order, I offer dozens of pictures taken in and around the Occupy L.A. encampment at Los Angeles City Hall. All of the photographs in this report were taken by me on 10/15/2011.

One table along the main walkway of the south lawn featured a couple of posters accusing Dick Cheney of orchestrating the 9/11/2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
