Ted Hayes reflects upon the march back to Pershing Square

Ted Hayes, a local homeless advocate with the Dome Village speaks out in love and concern for the homeless and the current movement that rocked LA downtown LA today.

During the historic Police Brutality march after the crowds reconnected, Ted Hayes stood as a shepard who inherited a flock of youthful energy that drove a crowd to let the Police know, "Who's streets? Our Streets!" Upon entering Persing Square he reflected upon the homeless and their plight after we are all gone on the 18th. He continued to share his love and admoration for the movement but stressed that we need true leadership. We need those bold few to stand up and say, "I am in charge here. I take responsibility. Deal with me." And unless we organize and deal with the powers to be by bringing them to the table, the energy that we've built today can take the wasted conclusion of the brilliant 60s.

If you've been around and know a little bit, the future is ours to carve one day at a time.
