Mayor Tony Villar said: "It is time for Occupy LA to movement from this piece of parkland.. It is time to close the park and restore this to a public park, ... and at 12:01 Monday morning, November 28 the law would be enforced". (Not too surprising that he could decide WHEN laws are enforced.) The Chief of Police added: "This is a national movement which the City of Los Angeles wanted to accommodate. They have had fifty-six days to put forth messages in a public park, which by the way, no one else has been able to use."
Occupy LA response: "We will continue to occupy this space, in solidarity with our global movement, until the forces of the few are forced to capitulate to the power of the people."
