PASADENA, CA–About 25 from Occupy Pasadena did our own action at 7:30 am. We marched about 5 blocks, from the busiest freeway overpass in town to a neighborhood with banks on every corner. We had a beautiful new 20-foot banner made by our art group, “United in Beautiful Struggle.”  We marched and chanted for a couple of hours.

Then we carpooled about 10 miles to an industrial area of northern L.A. for a union organizing event: minimum wage garbage separators with poor safety, no training and no benefits are fighting to organize a union.  We were the only Occupy group there, but about 500 people from a dozen or more unions were there.  It was well-organized, with a band, a jumbotron and live video.  Dolores Huerta was among the speakers.  After that it was off to Downtown L.A. to join Occupy movements from every corner of Los Angeles County.
