LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A coalition of labor unions and community groups have announced plans for a massive march in support of the “Occupy LA” encampment.

More than 1,000 protesters are planning to shut down streets in downtown Los Angeles at 7 a.m. Thursday.

They will meet at the Bank of America plaza on Hope Street and march to the corner of Figueroa and Fourth streets, where they plan to shut down the intersection and drop large banners from nearby overpasses.

Demonstrators say rush hour drivers should expect serious delays and street closures in downtown Los Angeles near the 110 Freeway.

There will be additional marches around noon Thursday.

      The OCCUPY MOVEMENT has become a BOWEL MOVEMENT, since it has been hijacked by the UNIONS and ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTs.


    Protesters need to grow a pair & quit obstructing other peoples lives. Blocking traffic & sit-ins are a real hassle & inconvenience for ALL who need to go about their daily lives.

    I support their cause or whatever issue these folks have but this is not the way to do it.

    How is disrupting the commute of thousands of individuals going to put pressure on banks? Those knuckleheads haven’t figured out yet that they are the other 1%.

    Hello! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with Search Engine Optimization? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good success. If you know of any please share. Appreciate it!
