Well, kinda, sorta. A press release from the "Occupy Los Angeles Media Relations Committee" (h/t Claudia Peschiutta) decries police actions in other cities and reaffirms the group's plan to keep protesting here.
We deplore the brutal show of force we have witnessed around the nation. We hold LAPD to a higher standard than we have seen from other cities, if Occupy LA refuses to exit City Hall. City council in its own resolution meticulously itemized a long list of our legitimate grievances -- so we know you know our cause is just. At this point, we have no plans to leave -- we have only begun our mission. If LA Occupiers eventually exit City Hall, it would be due to OccupyLA's conclusion that our work could be done more efficiently at another location. The various Occupations are the physical manifestation of the People's Voice- long silenced. As of Sept 17th that voice has awakened and demands to be heard.
Ah yes, "People's Voice." Feel like I'm back in the 60s. But I digress. There seems to be a difference of opinion as to whether Occupy L.A. representatives have talked about moving their operations. Chief Charlie Beck gingerly suggested that some sort of discussion has taken place; the OLA folks say no. This might go on a while - the mayor and other city officials were foolish enough to more or less support the protesters in the beginning (even though nobody really knew what they were supporting), and at some point they will need to pull back that support.
