MAYOR VILLARAIGOSA ISSUES STATEMENT ONUPCOMING CLOSURE OF CITY HALL PARK
LOS ANGELES
 –
 
Mayor Villaraigosa released the following statement today on theclosure of City Hall Park:
“As I stated this past Friday, it is
time for Occupy LA to move from focusing their effortsto hold a particular patch of parkland to spreading the message of economic justice anda restoration of balance to American society.That is why tonight, City Hall Park, where protesters and others have camped for nearly60 days, will officially close.While Occupy LA has brought needed attention to the economic disparities in ourcountry, an encampment on City Hall grounds is simply not sustainable indefinitely. Wewill close and rebuild the park so that any individual will have the opportunity to use thisfree speech zone to exercise their first amendment rights at City Hall.During the park rehabilitation, the Spring Street steps of City Hall will remain openduring park hours for the Occupy LA movement and other organizations that wish toexercise their freedom of speech.As Chief Beck has made clear, though the park will officially close tonight at 12:01 a.m.,the department will allow campers ample time to remove their belongings peacefullyand without disruption.I am proud of the fact that this has been a peaceful, non-violent protest. It has beenpeaceful because we have done things differently in Los Angeles.
