The Save Our State hierarchy continues to burn the candle at both ends. This time with the absurd call for a demonstration in, of all places, the city of Maywood.

Maywood is home to a bustling migrant community and is adjacent to the communities of Southgate, Bell and East Los Angeles. Southeast of downtown Los Angeles, Maywood is a densely populated town of 30,000 residents made up primarily of Latinos and Latino migrants.
Save Our State has never asked it’s members to attend a protest in a community with such a large migrant presence and the facts on the ground are sure to make it an exciting day.
Aside from the marches through downtown Los Angeles and the dual protests in Baldwin Park, all of which were permitted and heavily police protected, the last time Save Our State ventured into territory as unfriendly as Maywood was June 18, 2005 when 25 or so SOS loyalists were confronted by 200 activists, jornaleros and supporters of migrants rights in Alhambra. They had no permit to protest in Alhambra, as no permit is required for a political protest held on a public sidewalk. My guess is that they have no permit this time either.
When no permit is obtained, the local police departments are more likely to allow opposing factions to mingle, as was the case in Alhambra and Glendale. The nature of this protest is already obvious to several loudmouths on the SOS board who have already declined to participate. Who could blame them?
But the authoritarian (top-down) nature of SOS seems to be spiraling out of control as Don Silva, 48, Pacoima, is asking his true-believing rank-and-file to attend their fourth action in as many weeks. With the Redondo Beach rally already scheduled for August 5th, Don Silva can’t seem to stop himself. He obviously likes the attention. I wonder if any members will be suspended from the board for questioning his tactics?
The rally will be held Saturday, August 12 from 11:30am – 2pm in front of Maywood City Hall. The address is: 4319 Slauson Ave, Maywood, CA 90270 (three blocks west of Atlantic on Slauson).
Make no mistake about it; SOS is calling this rally as a direct attack on migrants. The city of Maywood has declared itself a “save-haven” for migrants. The declaration was in direct response to the draconian language in HR 4437.
Their right-wing analysis allows for nothing more than American Nationalism. They pretend to be against globalization but this time they are directly targeting those displaced by globalization. Being against globalization doesn’t mean building walls around countries, it means supporting the rights of working people everywhere as borders are nothing more than tools drawn by the ruling class to support their ends.
No longer can they claim that they are “going after the corporations (Home Depot) – this rally is in the heart of the southern California migrant community – one of the largest migrant communities in the world.
