Los Angeles police dismantle Occupy protesters’ tents 30 Nov 2011 More than 100 Los Angeles police officers, including dozens in white protective suits, surrounded the Occupy L.A. camp on the City Hall lawn early Wednesday and began to dismantle tents and other shelters. Officers in riot gear and armed with night sticks closed off streets around City Hall. Police used bullhorns to threaten protesters with arrest. “This has been declared to be an unlawful assembly. You have seven minutes to gather your belongings and decide to leave,” one officer said. Dozens of Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics and firefighters were also standing by on sealed off downtown streets. “This is what a police state looks like!” Occupy protesters chanted at the officers in riot gear.
