South Central Farm Evictions

So evictions are now happening at the South Central Farm. NBC has a story, photos and video (though their Windows Media is Mac-unfriendly), while CBS has a story in their video library (in the much nicer Flash video format). The LA Times also has a story.

While I think it's a shame to lose green space in the area south of Downtown, I can't say that I'm too anti-evictions on this one. The fight's gone on and no one's stepped up with the money to make a permanent farm happen. The guy owns the land, and you can't make that legal process go away by chaining yourself to a tree or dipping your hands in a concrete bucket (can't say I understand that one).
