Occupy LA Day 11: Lt. Dan Choi Drops By

Tuesday October 11 was National Coming Out Day, and on his way to speak at Cal State University Northridge, Lt. Dan Choi stopped by Occupy LA. While he was there he ran into activist friends and when lunch arrived he jumped to help carry pans of food to the tented cafeteria. Lt. Choi was asked to do a livestream broadcast with his friend and fellow activist Arturo, and gave several spontaneous interviews.

The Conrad Murry trial is across the street at the Superior Court, and news vans are parked across the street.  Today a plane flew over head trailing a banner with a picture of Michael Jackson declaring

China Demands Justice

Yesterday the banner read

Spain Demands Justice

It’s surreal because at Occupy LA, that’s what everyone wants, justice. Not justice for Michael Jackson, but justice, fairness equality for all Americans.

The teachers union made a substantial donation and the SEIU has 50 people planning to camp out. And the woman  camper who has her clothes stashed in a Louis Vuitton garment bag in her tent has turned it over so the logos don’t show!

99ers.
Here is what you need to be demanding as your one big start as THE demand of the people. This ONe thing will give you most all being asked for. It will force the Dems to chose sides and show their true colors as well.

State Banks

North Dakota has a state bank . It is not in debt. Its people are protected from foreclosure. Its private farms are protected from Big Ag. They have jobs and no real unemployment.

This is a clear answer and it it THE ANSWER to address a huge chunk of our demands.

If the Dems endorse OWS, let them prove it by awarding all the remaining 49 states State Bank Charters and helping them to get them going. If they refuse, the party should be abolished and sent to sit with the Repubs.

They also drill for billions of barrels of oil.
