Live from Occupy LA: It’s the General Assembly! With Special Guest Lt. Dan Choi!


updated – The livestream feed has been replaced by a recording of the event.

We’ve livestreaming from Occupy LA, where during the day solar panels on the south lawn fuel the media tent, because, well this is Los Angeles. And it has been well over 80 degrees the past two days, which makes for lots of opportunity to charge the solar panels, but keeps me indoors until the sun begins to dip.

There are over 250 tents encamped during the week, expect the numbers to go up on weekends when people come out as a brief vacation, an experiment in a new form of society.

Tonight we’re bringing you my first livestream of Occupy LA, this of the General Assembly, where Lt. Dan Choi will be speaking. Hope you enjoy this. I’ll be livestreaming regularly and hopefully will get better at it as time goes on.
