LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles police have declared an unlawful assembly at a rally by Occupy Wall Street sympathizers in the downtown financial district.
Sixteen people who plan to be arrested Thursday have linked arms around several tents as officers gather nearby.
Two other people were arrested earlier for interfering with officers but the march and rally has otherwise been peaceful.
The group, chiefly a coalition of labor unions, gathered between the Bank of America tower and Wells Fargo Plaza, chanting "Banks got bailed out, we got sold out." The protesters then marched several blocks and occupied an intersection.
Good Jobs LA, a coalition that includes labor organizations, community groups and others, is organizing the protest. Many are wearing purple Service Employees International Union jackets and T-shirts.
