Introduction

Occupy LA has over 400 people in a tent city on the steps of LA City Hall. Like the protest towns that sprung up after the Great Depression and the Civil War, they are there to press the case that the people are being ripped off - by the banks that now take back the homes they gave mortgages for, by Wall Street who rakes in billions while unemployment stays hight, by the corporations which have record profits while they hoard cash and only create jobs overseas while paying no or very little US taxes.
