20. Lawsuits against the LAPD need to start NOW.
Stay strong protesters and keep the PEACEFUL movement going.

Also, start contacting legal organizations and start massive lawsuits against the LAPD and city of Los Angeles for their civil rights violations. This has got to stop! The way to stop it, in addition to the OWS Los Angeles protests, is to take LEGAL action against those who have attacked you. I don't know who, but perhaps Occupy LA should contact OWS in New York and get ideas and names of organizations on how they fought back in NY and are winning.

Meanwhile, the world is watching. Check this out:

The United Nations is criticizing the US for the way they have been treating the PEACEFUL protesters:
"La Rue said he is in the process of writing what he called "an official communication" to the U.S. government "to ask what exactly is the position of the federal government in regards to understanding the human rights and constitutional rights vis-a-vis the use of local police and local authorities to disband peaceful demonstrations."
Although the letter will not carry any legal authority, it reflects how the violent suppression of dissent threatens to damage the U.S.'s international reputation."
