Occupy This:

On this day for International Human Rights of December 10, 2011:

Silence is consent, so while Los Angeles Mayor Villaraigosa & Los Angeles Chief of Police, Charlie Beck are busy congratulating each other on a "peaceful" eviction of LA City Hall and "only 3 instances of violence exerted by LAPD officers", we must address these flagrant lies as well as their multiple violations of the Constitution for the United States of America, and the California State Constitution of 1849.

On October 10, it was publicly decreed by International Sovereigns, that the land surrounding City Hall, was repatriated based on Discovery of the Tongva People in 9,000 BC and Usufruct (public use of public land) since 1928.  While still waiting for acknowledgement from the United Nations, officials including City Attorney, Carmen Trutanitch, Captains of the LA Fire Department, LAPD, and members of LA City Council were notified that the area was no longer under Municipal jurisdiction.

On October 12, LA City Council unanimously voted in favor of Resolution 33, to support the Occupy LA protest.  LA City Council President, Eric Garcetti publicly stated, "Stay as long as you like".  This "support" was never further defined, although it should have included sanitation and other issues mentioned as items for concern by the Mayor.

According to California Tenant Rights, those in domicile for more than 30 days with the complicit understanding of the landlord (which was established by more than 100 people at 200 N. Spring Street), require a 30 day eviction notice and LAPD protocol is instructed not to make arrests as such matters are classified as "a civil matter to be ruled on by the courts."  According to State and Federal precedents, tents ARE considered legal domiciles.

The Mayor's announcement of an eviction on the Friday after the holiday formerly known as American Thanksgiving, was viewed as unlawful on several grounds, including but not limited to, Article 11 Section 2 of the California State Constitution of 1849.  The Attorney General was contacted for an Order for Protection, but their offices were closed for the holiday.  On Sunday, a Federal Judge was contacted for a Federal Injunction to stay the eviction.  On Monday, the National Lawyers' Guild filed a State injunction to stay the eviction, expecting to be heard in court before Wednesday.

On multiple occasions, the LAPD, City Council and Mayors' office have been notified that We, the People of California, do not yield our sovereignty to the agencies that serve us, placing this matter outside of municipal jurisdiction.  On Monday, November 28, Chief Beck gave a press conference where he stated "time is on our side and we will take as much time as we need to make sure the homeless are brought to shelters and that everyone is evacuated safely."

It is important for everyone to know that LAPD DID INDEED exercise unnecessary force on Tuesday evening of November 29, 2011; that no one was EVER served an eviction notice or given appropriate time to evacuate.  The Mayor, City Council and LAPD are responsible for knowingly violating our 1st, 4th, 5th, 8th, 9th and 10th Amendment Rights.  Their "extensive destruction and appropriation of property not justified by military necessity and carried out unlawfully and wantonly" (ie: the throwing of our property directly into the City Dump without a warrant or acknowledgement of the property as evidence in a Crime Scene) is considered a "grave breach" of the Third and Fourth Geneva Conventions, providing the legal definition of a "War Crime".

It is unclear to us why this conflagration of unmitigated subjugation is being complacently dismissed as an issue of "illegal camping", when this is clearly a globally relevant issue of an International Violation of Human Rights.  When Mayor Villaraigosa smugly suggests that the City of Los Angeles will have to pay less in damages than the MayDay Riots of 2007, We the People of California submit that will not be the case.  It is public knowledge that every domicile/tent destroyed is entitled to reparations of up to $10,000; every mentally ill resident displaced unlawfully is entitled to up to $2.2 million dollars in reparations and every person unlawfully incarcerated is entitled to up to $10,000 per minute of their incarceration.

We the People of the California Republic, demand a Federal Investigation of the crime scene of the LA City Hall International Tort of November 30, 2011, reparations, and an International Trial of Mayor Villaraigosa, LAPD Chief Beck, and all of LA City Council for their war crimes against the People of California.
