LOS ANGELES, California – Around 800 demonstrators defended Solidarity Park for #OccupyLA Tuesday night. The city sent in some 1,400 police officers to clear the occupiers after a failed attempt earlier this week when thousands of demonstrators swarmed the encampment in solidarity. By 2:30am Wednesday morning most demonstrators had been cleared from the park. Around 290 were arrested throughout the evening. See photos here: 1, 2, 3
