LOS ANGELES — An Occupy Los Angeles organizer says city officials have pulled back on an offer that would have given protesters a downtown office space in exchange for their removal of encampments.
Occupy organizer Ryan Rice told the Los Angeles Daily News (http://bit.ly/vhQHtZ ) Tuesday that staffers in Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's office were unhappy about the media attention the offer got.
The offer would have leased a 10,000 square foot office space in the Los Angeles Mall to the protesters for $1 a year.
Rice says other departments were also unhappy because they hadn't been briefed in advance of the offer.
The mayor's office declined comment.
