SF, LA city officials negotiating with Occupy movement to find better places for their camps
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) ' With anti-Wall Street protesters entrenched in encampments in San Francisco and Los Angeles, the cities are desperate for long-term solutions to end the drain on their resources.
Occupiers in both cities have been negotiating with city officials about moving to new locations with better facilities and sanitation.
In San Francisco, the city is negotiating with Occupy SF members about moving their encampment from the heart of the financial district to an empty school in the city's hip Mission district.
Occupy members said Wednesday Los Angeles officials rescinded a similar deal, in which the city would have leased a 10,000-square-foot space that once housed a bookstore in Los Angeles Mall to the protesters for $1 a year.
