    Occupy LA by Niko Deleon

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     nikodeleon says this was his first time documenting the Occupy LA camp. It's located in front of City Hall in downtown LA, and he says there were a few hundred people there. He says the people had an attitude of 'hopelessness, desperation; just folks wanting to make some kind of change. I felt like they were very unified, though.'

    He talked to a few of the protesters, and he says the general consensus was that 'they felt that there was such a difference of classes; rich aren’t taxed properly. Poor keep getting poorer and rich keep getting richer.'
