Update, 3/15/08: Here's a video of the LAPD at the Anonymous event and a photo essay of all the craziness. Also, here's a video from the Anti-War March.
If you're walking the streets of Hollywood this Saturday, be prepared to march or take in the sights -- two protests are planned and both could be crazy.March 15th is the second of worldwide protests against Scientology planned by Anonymous. In the video below, 22 rules are set to visuals of Los Angeles in a very creepy but cool way. If you missed all the action, you'll understand a lot more by checking out our photo essay from the last protest. Info about Saturday below the video.
Over at Hollywood and Vine starting at noon, AnswerLA will protest the fifth anniversary of the war (March 19 is the actual day, but that's a weekday for those school and working folks). Their website reads: "Thousands of people in Los Angeles and across the world will mark the 5th anniversary of the criminal invasion of Iraq. Over 1 million Iraqis and nearly 4,000 U.S. soldiers have died for corporate profits and lies. The people of the world our voices heard."
