"Boycott Forever 21" a sign read at a small protest of around 30 people gathered last Saturday outside the Pasadena location of Forever 21. At issue is the former land of the South Central farm, which was a community farm that was evicted and moved to the San Joaquin Valley, of all places. A Forever 21 distribution center will be the new occupant, once the site is developed. "We're asking for Forever 21 to return the land to the community," a young protester of the Never Forever 21 Coalition told CurbedLA. "It could be turned into a park, for instance." CurbedLA was there to catch the action and a video.
