Occupy Los Angeles just tweeted about a possible raid: “LAPD is preparing to for #OLARaid tonight! Get to City Hall NOW!”

KQED’s Krissy Clark is at the General Assembly right now where she says they are announcing the possible raid and and discussing preparations. She says just a few people have raised their hands saying they plan to be arrested.

You can stream web cam video from the park here. I enjoyed the irony of sitting through an ad for U.S. Bank before the Occupy live stream started:

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa told the L.A. Times today that “he decided it was time to evict Occupy L.A. protesters from the City Hall lawn after learning that there were children staying there.”
