His Name Was Aaron Swartz
When you think about Aaron Swartz, I want you to think about what it says about “justice” in this country when the plea deal has almost completely replaced a trial as the predominant resolution of criminal prosecutions. A staggering 90% of criminal complaints are resolved through plea deal rather than a free and fair trial. This, of course, also explains why prosecutors boast such...

uhavenothin2losebuturchains: anarcho-queer: By Jess E. Hadden Yesterday afternoon, via Facebook, I heard about a solidarity march, being organized by an autonomous group.

I didn’t personally know Leah, but philosophically I supported the stand she was taking against the Federal...

occupyla: It really bemuses me that none of my 400+ non-activist friends seem to be at all worried about the steady erosion of their (already quite limited) rights. Further, the rapidly broadening definition of the word “violent” by governments, both foreign and domestic, is deeply troublesome. The media…
#M1GS: CNN Lies To The People
On April 27th, 2012, CNN published a misleading, inaccurate and damaging article entitled ‘LA May day observances split immigration’. While the various immigration groups who have traditionally marched on May Day have naturally been in various stages of ideological and sometimes political conflict, Occupy LA has never been part of these internal differences, and stands firmly in...

WTF is M1GS? What are the caravans? 4 winds? There’s too much happening - how do I get involved? I don’t have a car. What’s the point? Yeah, I’m hearing this all day long. So here’s your handy 101 guide to getting involved, complete with links. #M1GS stands for May 1st General Strike. Occupy LA called for a General Strike back in November. It was approved by the...

She was a 21-year-old with an associate’s degree when she reported for boot camp at Parris Island, South Carolina. “I felt like it was the right thing to do,” Schroeder recalls. A year and a half later, the Marines diagnosed her with a personality disorder and deemed her psychologically unfit for the Corps. ...

Billy: Tool or Provocateur?
General Assemblies are famously plagued by losers. Let’s be honest - every great GA has, in equal amounts, been accompanied by a GA which descended into a shitfest because of someone with an obvious mental problem or personality disorder. From Juan (“You are all fucking idiots!) to Donald (“This is fascism! Facilitation is run by Fascists!” as he plows a small Latina girl...
OLA, sexual assault and justice without the Pigs
On Friday 23rd March, a group of empowered OLA women came together to announce the following to the General Assembly, and seek their assistance in finding a solution. This announcement and ensuing discussion was livestreamed and recorded in the minutes of OLA’s General Assembly. The women’s circle has decided to meet again this week to decide on their next course of action in holding...

Black Power GA
Two weeks ago Occupy LA held its first Black Power GA, organized by antiracism campaigner and OLA comrade, Brother Michael Novick, staunch Occupier Nigerian-American Brother Dele, Brother Bilal Ali of LA-CAN, and Occupy the Hood / Foreclosures powerhouse, Brother Kwazi Nkrumah. Unfortunately, OLA Media didn’t think it important to cover the Black Power GA, nor the Skid Row GA, so no...
Lessons from #F29 and Argentina
After coming back from the Walmart Shutdown I was reminded of Argentina. In Argentina, where the people took command of many highways for weeks, every driver who wanted to, could make her/his case in front of the impromptu “intersection GA,” explaining why he should be given permission to pass. Then, the GA would discuss it until it would arrive to consensus. If a consensus was...

Introduction: Who is Sue Basko? Since day one of Occupy LA, this unstable individual who claims to be a lawyer has assiduously tried to control the movement, at first through simply blogging on the Occupy LA site warning against civil disobedience (No Banner drops! Stay on the sidewalk! Don’t smoke in Solidarity Park! It’s illegal!) and then by targeting, harassing, cyber-stalking and...
White OLA Fucks Up Local Communities
Background: Reformist members of OLA have been holding a picnic, without GA approval, and with the overt opposition of Radical OLA, in Macarthur Park. After Revolutionary Autonomous Communities (RAC) politely told picnickers to be more cognizant and respectful of the local community, the picnickers were asked by Radical members of OLA to find an alternative location. They refused. On Sunday,...

Why Self-Help Actually Hurts the Movement
SELF HELP AND OCCUPY Welcome to another excoriating edition of Occupy LA AntiSocial Media. The target today—self-help culture and the noxious influence of a mind-boggling array of bad books , talkshow TV, romantic comedies, and pop songs arguing from the same basic standpoint—how you feel right now is more important than civic virtue, duty, social justice, and one’s work (as...
Solidarity Forever Alex
OLAASM mourns today the loss of a true comrade, Alex Weinschenker, who fell victim to the disease of addiction and the illegal war on drugs. Alex was a radical, an anarchist, a fearless warrior for the Occupy movement, and an incredibly talented artist. Even those who did not know Alex personally probably wore his artwork on bandanas, t-shirts and scarfs, saw his signs waved at protests. Alex...
