A couple hundred people took to the front gates of Dodger Stadium yesterday, protesting Arizona's controversial immigration law SB 1070 and the Arizona Diamondbacks (they lost, by the way). LAist Sports Editor Jimmy Bramlett has the full story here, and above are some more photos showing the scene, which was vibrant and carried a sense of organized chaos as protestors walked back and forth on crosswalks in front of cars at red lights.

Many Dodger fans honked in support while others looked on in surprised amazement at the scene taking place before them. The night was mostly peaceful, but at one point an impatient driver who tried to squeeze through a light prompted some protestors to block his car for a few minutes (photo) before LAPD officers approached. Despite that small dramatic moment, police generally stayed back and made sure things stayed peaceful.
