I can no longer say occupiers around the country have accomplished nothing. Los Angeles occupiers, if they leave the City Hall area, will get downtown office space and FARMLAND! Its a “package of incentives,” and they have their own attorney.
Lafferty said city officials have offered protesters a $1-a-year lease on a 10,000-square-foot office space near City Hall. He said officials also promised land elsewhere for protesters who wish to farm, as well as additional housing for the contingent of homeless people who joined the camp.
So, the farmland is owned by whom? The Feds, the county?
Trouble in LA-La-Land. Remember, within the Occupy movement, there is no pyramidal authority. Everything is horizontal. No one is the boss:
The proposals were received with a mix of excitement, anger and disbelief among protesters, many of whom did not know that members of the camp were in negotiations with city officials.
