Chaos In The Streets Of Los Angeles Califonia
Last night the Los Angeles Police Department Wednesday night ordered a citywide tactical alert after #protesters and officers faced off at Echo Park Lake over the city’s plan to close the park and remove the encampment. Police issued a dispersal order for the late late-nights shortly before 10:45 p.m., declaring the demonstration an unlawful assembly.
Earlier in the day, hundreds rallied against the plan to temporarily close Echo Park Lake in order the large-scale encampment and clean up an estimated $500,000 in damage. The group demonstrators grouped from the park to O’Farrell’s office, shutting down a portion of Sunset Boulevard a little before 8 a.m. Several hundred eventually returned to Echo Park Lake, vowing to remain if the city tried to push out the unhoused population.
