5:30 Just received a press release forwarded by swell singer/songwriter Michelle Shocked, who sang at the Jan. 2 rally following the Rose Parade (and was earlier busted in L.A. camp raid). It opens, "Members of Occupy LA will be occupying the foreclosed South Central home of Mrs. Faith Parker, a 79-year-old retired school teacher, who fights eviction as a result of Bank of America’s irresponsibility. Mrs. Parker has owned her home since 1964….Members of Occupy LA and Occupy the Hood LA call for more responsible banking and will be joined at 4pm by community and faith leaders to defend the Parkers from eviction on 60th Street."
Actions start at 4 pm local time. Contact: Carlos Marroquin (323) 592-4663.
