    LOS ANGELES, CA - NOVEMBER 22: A man sleeps in a tent in the Occupy Los Angeles camp in front of Los Angeles City Hall.

    Members of Occupy Los Angeles who did not go to jail on Wednesday, spent the day trying to figure out their next move.

    One member promised “Occupy LA will not die!”

    Mario Brito joined other supporters at an impromptu rally and noted, “the eviction was only of tents, not of our ideas and definitely not of our movement.”

    [LA] Ousted Los Angeles Occupiers Vow to Continue Their Movement
    Members of Occupy Los Angeles who did not go to jail on Wednesday, spent the day trying to figure out their next move.

    A handful of “occupiers” showed up at La Placita Church under the mistaken notion they could pitch their tents there. But the church turned them down and a number of them wandered through the downtown area looking for a place to regroup.

    “We have scouts around the town who are looking for permanently occupiable spaces,” said Darren Danks of the movement.

    One direction the movement is considering is to join in the plan to dispute the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach on December 12th.

    Another was the pledge to “Occupy the Rose Parade.”

    They are also calling for a moratorium on foreclosures.

    But the majority of the hard-core supporters of Occupy LA are in jail until they can raise the $5,000 bail slapped on them when they were arrested.

    Their supporters say the bail is high to keep them from reconverging again on downtown Los Angeles.
