|Police in riot gear have moved into the Occupy LA encampment outside City Hall to enforce the mayor's order to evict protesters who have been camped out for the past eight weeks.
Hundreds of activists, joined by supporters streaming into the area in a show of solidarity, crowded the lawn, sidewalks and streets around City Hall as helmeted officers moved into the encampment.
Local television news showed large numbers of police, patrol cars, buses and other vehicles at Dodger stadium, a few miles away, in what appeared to be a major police staging operation.
