City Of Los Angeles Now Wants To Keep Occupy's 'Trash' Forever

Remember all that "trash" that remained after Occupy L.A. was evicted?


Remember all that "trash" that remained after Occupy L.A. was evicted? City crews said that they "expected to send 30 tons of refuse to the landfill." Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said that the clean-up process "could exceed $1 million." Now the Department of Cultural Affairs General Manager, Olga Garay, has labeled the Occupy Octopus an "artifact," and has even "asked for proposals from the public regarding ways to take possession and display the art." But, Occupy L.A. wants the octopus returned to them along with other murals created by members of the group.

Unfortunately, the fate of the Occupy Octopus, a 24-by-16 piece depicting a federal reserve bank as an evil octopus, will be decided by...Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.
