On Thursday tens of thousands of demonstrators marched for Economic Justice in New York City and across the nation. Hundreds marched in Orange County throughout the day in Santa Ana, Irvine, Laguna Hills, and Orange. I joined the march through Santa Ana with about 75 members of the OccupyOC-Santa Ana and members of SEIU Local 1877.

The headline on the MSNBC.com page reads: ‘Occupy’ protesters dig in against police, eviction notices — Denver officers break up camp; Portland, Salt Lake City, Oakland order evictions. I fear an approaching storm, one similar to that faced by the Bonus Army in the summer of 1932.

UPDATED Request denied. For some, the idea of allowing the Occupy OC patriots in Santa Ana the ability to camp overnight in the Civic Center should be a no-brainer for the City Council. After all, if Irvine can do it, why can’t Santa Ana? As with most things civic, it’s not that simple.
