All Nighter in Eagle Rock, Los Angeles California
August 17 was a hot Saturday. North East Radical Neighbors for Peace through Justice (NELA Rad) set up their weekly protest, at Eagle Rock and Colorado Boulevards, at 2pm. They set out their signs, the standards: Pledge of Allegiance to the Earth, Afghanistan: Graveyard of Empires, and Peace is not simply the Absence of Violence... to name a few. Smartly, they set up a shade awning, and broke out snacks, water bottles, a table and chairs. While this group usually addresses what they refer to as “Peace through Justice, and all the related issues,” this weekend they were focused on “Global Warming, and all the related issues.” (image/jpeg + 3 comments)
