i'm happy you went! super fresh-ness. & you took a good picture of rax--yes!
if the news doesn't cover it...then they don't cover it. though i wish they would in a way that didn't make folks look like criminals. but they do get the press releases...and the city gets the permits filed...and the lawyers guild(professional peoples who make money go out there to support--which shows it's not just a bunch of angry people of color...or a bunch of bored rich white enviornmentalists, plus it gets the business folk hot and bothered, and it stops traffic which makes people take note. i'm not saying its the sole way to get attention. but it is inspiring to see large crowds converge on such issues. and one reason there were so many socialists there is cause that party sells there stuff at answer and have overlapping member(leader)ship.
you wouldn't take your kids? i'm all for bringing little kids. I'd much rather having them exposed to the left. i mean, they are much cuter khufiya clad, peace sign face painted peace, banging on plastic paint bucket drums than babies plastered w/ the American flag pins, stickers, visors, yellow ribbons( i always thought yellow ribbons meant bring home the troops) flossing stars & stripes diapers waiting for their All-American young urban underpriviledged minority I don't know jack about the people I'm killing pond-fathers to come home from 2005 style colonization.
At about 11 o clock before the rallies began on Hollywood and Vine.
Where the mile march from Vine ended. Right in front of Mann's Chinese Theatre on Hollywood and Orange.
There were probably about 2,000-3,000 people at the most.
Next section were a bunch of interesting posters that I fished out. All are somewhat self-explanatory.
The rest of the pictures are my folks from school and KmB. I decided that I needed to put more faces to these posters.
Yes, UCLA Pilipinos from Samahang and Kappa Something Something and KmB were repping hardcore.
The mile march headed up by that fool on the right and trailed by a bombass staff assistant leader person.

In conclusion, I need to take better people pictures. The protest --- it was like any other protest full of socialists who criticize liberals and Democrats. Nothing too extraordinary. I still don't know what the protest would do other than get a one-second blurb on the local news, but it's still a fun event to be at (not that I would eventually take my kids there or anything).
