Occupy L.A. protesters demonstrate on the front lawn of Los Angeles City Hall after the midnight deadline set by city officials to shut down the encampment expired on Nov. 28, 2011. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa on Friday gave the protesters outside City Hall until 12:01 a.m. Monday to dismantle their campsite and leave. This morning, although some arrests were made, police have not yet cleared the camp.

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa told people occupying the City Hall lawn to vacate by midnight. But the occupiers are still there, and the police have not made a move to clear the camp.

As the standoff continues, KPCC's Frank Stoltze updates on the latest. Madeleine also talks to protester Matt Kresling.
