Cheryl Aichele: Thursday night, August 2, participants of the July 12 Chalk Walk protest at Downtown Los Angeles Art Walk are helping organize a Community Town Hall meeting to provide space for sharing ideas, concerns, and suggestions for moving forward together as members of the community of Downtown Los Angeles.
Cheryl Aichele: Chalk Walk activists say they want to know why LA City Council ignored their requests for help with chalking arrests before the Council went on recess.
Cheryl Aichele: Apparently, the City believes their chalking event is legal because they had a permit. However, the box the chalk comes in seems to encourage what the Mayor calls criminal behavior.
Cheryl Aichele: Occupy LA Activists hope its chalk-art campaign will hit LAPD in the pocket books and others in their hearts to raise awareness and encourage others to participate.
Cheryl Aichele: Occupiers feel LAPD has targeted them in attempt to silence their dissent and stop their actions. Courtroom witnesses have been threatened with arrest; while Occupiers have been arrested for chalk art and say they are victims of police misconduct.
