4. And their obligation to corporate sponsors is more than to the tax payers? I'd ask.

But this is a battle that will not be won as shown by the long history, many years of fighting over this plot of land. Most of these things are just showplaces.

Occupy may have support but they've likely reached too far in this conflict to win on the ground or even ideologically. I don't think they will win in that neighborhood.

Please detail the organic communes you mention in other areas. Even though this was about urban gardening, not these convenient other areas.

As is typical in disputes over land, it is an exact plot of ground being fought over, just as the veterans home in the Brentwood neighborhood, or the place in San Diego with the Cross.

Sometimes people are not willing to just go to another place. Your claim they can have a garden somewhere else doesn't address this issue, just dismisses it.
