Police Forcibly Shut Down South Central L.A. Urban Farm, 40+ Protesters Arrested
Hundreds of police officers in riot gear shut down a fourteen-acre urban farm in South Central Los Angeles on Tuesday. More than 40 protesters, including actor Darryl Hannah were arrested as they staged an encampment to resist removal from what is considered the largest urban farm in the United States.
It took authorities nearly eight hours to forcibly clear the farm. Police bulldozed vegetable gardens and used bolt cutters to remove the protesters who had chained themselves to trees and picnic tables on the property.
Since an eviction order last month, occupants have staged an encampment to resist removal from the land. Some three hundred and fifty families in South Central LA have used the fourteen-acre farm to grow a multitude of crops for over the past ten years. It was leased to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank following the 1992 Rodney King riots. In 2003, the land was sold back to a real estate developer who now wants to turn it into commercial property. The owner -"SCUM LORD" Ralph Horowitz - recently turned down a sixteen million dollar offer for the site.
Meanwhile the overpaid, Media pimps and whores (apologies to an honorable profession) are criminal in their neglect, "inbedded" as they are with this administration, to keep us informed about what is going on in the world.
They come on each morning in their oh so proper, clicked and slimed manor, and like marionettes laugh and joke and spew the latest in recipes and fashion.
This morning's display of pathetic decadence was dropping mints into large bottles of diet soda and thrilling to its contents gushed into the air along with the money wasted to buy both of the useless ingredients, while the poor go hungry.
Meanwhile two of the biggest criminals of all time, in my opinion, I refer to the two B's of Grand Britania and America, no better than any of history's war criminals are forcing (I hope they are not doing it willingly) to violate the laws of justice and human dignity.
I say SHAME, SHAME and again SHAME.
I pray God there is an honest Judge with enough strength and integrity to salvage what ever semblance of Democracy there may be left in this world and safeguard human dignity and safeguard the rights of the oppressed.
