    It’s May. The grunions are running and so are the members of Occupy L.A. They wriggle up from the cold and dark, plant their tushies on the warm ground and squirm about frantically, desperate to get something accomplished, until a massive tide sweeps them away.

    And I’m not...

    The eradication of the Occupy Los Angeles encampment at City Hall last night by 1,400 Los Angeles Police Department officers was historic in its scope and remarkable for having been carried out without causing too many injuries to protesters—but for reporters trying to cover the...

  • Occupy L.A. Repurposes Sukkah

    By Jonah Lowenfeld

    November 15, 2011 | 9:42 pm

    In light of the unannounced clearing of Occupy Wall Street from its place in Zuccotti Park in Downtown New York early Tuesday morning, I thought it would be a good day to take a look at how Occupy L.A. was doing, forty-some-odd days into its occupation.

    Everything is still there—including this familiar-looking temporary structure.

  • Opinion: Occupy Obama

    By David Suissa

    November 9, 2011 | 5:08 pm

    From the start, something has annoyed me about the Occupy Wall Street movement. I’m not sure why it’s taken me so long to put my finger on it. Maybe, like much of the country, I’ve been caught up in the spontaneous fervor and social ideals of the movement. There’s something...

    By Jonah Lowenfeld

    November 2, 2011 | 4:19 pm

    From the very beginning of the Occupy Wall Street movement, people wanted to know why.

    Why did a group of protesters calling themselves “the 99 percent” take up residence in Zuccotti Park in Lower Manhattan on Sept. 17?

    Why were so many people galvanized by the Occupy Wall...

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    October 31, 2011 | 3:36 pm

    I was downtown recently and stopped by the Occupy LA protests.  My heart is with the Occupy Wall Street protesters and I truly believe they may bring about positive changes in our political system.  But on a lighter note, I also noticed that there seemed to be a lot of new...

  • Opinion: How Occupy will end

    October 31, 2011 | 12:15 pm

    No one knows what difference Occupy Wall Street will turn out to make. 

    This could the start of something big.  Maybe the burgeoning sense that something is not right in America will reach a critical mass.  It’s already showing up in the polls.  Maybe more and more ordinary...

    As part of the Occupy Los Angeles movement, hundreds of Angelenos have been living in tents outside downtown’s City Hall for several weeks. On Oct. 16, Jewish groups rallied in a sukkah alongside these temporary shelters.

    “I think of a sukkah as a structure that’s full of...

  • Why I went to Occupy L.A. instead of synagogue

    October 12, 2011 | 11:24 am

    A little more than a month ago, I became a Bat Mitzvah. In Judaism, that means I am now an adult and have pledged to keep the traditions of my faith. And yet it was for those very reasons that I decided to spend Yom Kippur - the holiest day of the Jewish year - joining the protesters...
