The other Occupy L.A.

While the Occupy L.A. protestors face eviction today from their City Hall encampment, their counterparts  at East Los Angeles College have shown no signs of uprooting Occupy ELAC and are planning a protest today, reports Eastsider contributor C.J. Salgado:

Students have been holding out, day and night, in about two dozen tents set up since Halloween, battling the recent rain and cold. They are hoping to make a point about the ongoing budget axe assault on the higher education system, making it more difficult for students to go to college. A rally is scheduled Monday on campus at the foyer. They hope Governor Brown will heed their pleas and restore more support for higher education.
