Police in riot-gear move in on anti-Wall Street demonstrators as Occupy L.A. protesters take to the streets around City Hall in downtown Los Angeles, early on Nov. 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.
