A man has a word with police on hand to close of the street as Occupy LA protesters take to the streets around City Hall in downtown Los Angeles, early on November 28, 2011. More than 1,000 anti-Wall Street protesters defied a deadline to leave a park near Los Angeles City Hall Monday, as police vowed to evict them "as gently as possible" to clear out a two-month old camp. The midnight deadline passed without police charging the encampment, but by the middle of the night scores of baton-wielding officers had surrounded the park, preventing the protesters from moving into adjacent streets to clear the streets for the morning traffic.
