The remains of the Occupy Los Angeles encampment early Wednesday morning, after police moved in to evict protesters.  From the LA Times:

Much of the Occupy L.A. campsite was in shambles early Wednesday morning, with tents uprooted and strewn all over. 
Most of the crowd either left or was arrested at about 2:10 a.m., but  about three dozen occupiers remained on City Hall’s south lawn, seated  on the ground with their arms locked together in a giant circle.
Los Angeles Police Department officers pulled out the remaining  occupiers one by one by their legs and arms, putting them into plastic  handcuffs. Nearly all of the protesters went limp and had to be carried  out. 
The camp, which had existed for two months, was a mess. Tents had  been pulled up by police, leaving behind a scene of litter, cardboard  boxes, plastic tarps and clothes.
Several protesters remained up in the trees, but at about 2:15 a.m., a  cherry picker from the LAPD bomb squad arrived to help police remove  them.
