It seems however that their ideals are shared by many and the protest has spread. In Los Angles a group of people inspired by the protests in New York have followed suit. Occupy Los Angeles protest movement may be the first in a long line of such groups unless America wakes up to the voice of the people.
Unlike New York the LA police, on the whole, left the protesters to it. A police spokesperson said, "It's been a very peaceful demonstration. They're out there exercising their First Amendment right, so we're going to allow them to continue as long it doesn't become an unlawful assembly."
In what had soon become an established procedure the protesters were to be moved from "the south lawn of City Hall to the sidewalk at 10:30 p.m. Sunday, and back from the pavement to the lawn at 6 a.m. Monday".
The protesters have utilised Internet powers such as Facebook and Twiiter to organise and publicise their cause. Passing traffic generally has been honking vehicle horns in support. Sooner or later the "fat cats" will have to listen, like it or not. Will they then act though? If so in what way?
