L.A. this weekend
Today there’s a march and rally in Hollywood. Assemble Hollywood & Vine, march to CNN and tell them what you think of their war coverage.
Sunday, of course, is the Academy Awards. There’s a rally several blocks away at Sunset & Orange. The buzz is some may attempt an unauthorized march. Be aware that due to the Oscars, the area will have hundreds of police and sheriffs in it, as well as Homeland Security.
Yes, Homeland Security has been popping up here at protests lately. On Wednesday apparently there was major friction between LAPD and Homeland Security. Those arrested at the Westwood Federal Building were taken to the LAPD station in West L.A., brought back to the Federal Building to be booked, then taken back to the West L.A. station to be released.
Ah, aside from the obvious turf war going on here, if Homeland Security can’t even handle 38 arrests without creating chaos, well frankly, I’m just not optimistic about their chances of finding the Evildoers.
