Nearly fourteen hundred police officers stormed the Occupy Los Angeles camp Wednesday morning, reports The NY Post. Authorities began the raid on the two-month old camp just after midnight, two days after a deadline passed for the protestors to clear out.

Defiant protestors who were chanting slogans and booing the officers were arrested. One man with a camera was wrestled to the ground on City Hall steps even as someone yelled “police brutality.”

Occupy Los Angeles started Oct. 1, two weeks after the protest movement began in New York with Occupy Wall Street.

Do you think authorities can really stop this? Will this movement actually affect change?
