Last night thousands of Angelenos showed up to resist the eviction of Occupy LA. I was there last night and witnessed an encampment and surrounding areas packed with supporters of the movement.

Suffice to say: I think we are all exhausted from last night but that will not deter us from continuing to fight to reclaim the American Dream for the 99%. Here’s some video from last night:

Update: a testament of the movement’s endurance? The first edition of the Occupied Los Angeles Times is fresh off the presses. Also, Occupy LA has put out this Emergency Communique.
