Final Occupy LA Pre-May Day GA In DTLA

SuicideGirls just got back from Occupy LA’s final pre-May Day General Assembly. The assembled 99 percenters noted with some pride that the motion to mark International Workers’ Day with a General Strike, which was first tabled by the group in November 2011, has become a reality, with occupations in 100+ cities poised to join in the May 1st action.

At the meeting, held in Downtown LA’s Pershing Square, a last minute resolution to take action against employers who retaliate against striking employees was unanimously passed. This was followed by a refresher course in what to do if you are stopped and searched or questioned by the police tomorrow. The three key phrases to remember being:

  • “Am I being detained?”
  • “I do not consent to a search.”
  • “I would like to speak to a lawyer.”

As Los Angeles occupiers march from the 4 Winds in the North, South, East, and West corners of the sprawling metropolis to converge at 6th and Main at 2.30 PM, hopefully these phrases will be surplus to requirements and the subsequent afternoon actions in the Financial District will be peaceful. Occupy LA plans to close the day out with a special General Assembly at 7 PM. All are welcome. For more info visit: occupymay1st.org/
