After watching the media coverage of the Occupy LA movement I was disheartened. It was decidedly glib. I moved my tent to City Hall the morning of October 28th and set an intention to stay for the duration.
I took a walk through the construction site at the nefarious Ford Hotel with two former residents, Abraham and Travelle. They spent their childhood in the well-documented hellhole, witnessing life at the bottom rung of capitalism.
