Tents banned in Los Angeles parks; Occupy activists upset
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The Los Angeles City Council on Wednesday unanimously voted to ban tents from city parks.
Some Occupy L.A. activists called it an assault on the Occupy Wall Street movement. They said homeless people are the ones who will be hurt by the ordinance. Occupy protesters took over a park in front of City Hall for about two months before it was dismantled by a police raid last November.
The ban is expected to be approved by the mayor. City officials said the move was intended to provide clarity about what constitutes camping.
