LAUSD teachers planned a walk out today over budget cuts forcing massive teacher layoffs, then a judge said no, the teachers okay, we won't walk out, we'll protest before school begins and now some teachers haven't stopped protesting.

This planned civil disobedience includes 700 teachers calling in sick and small protests around the city. Both the United Teachers of Los Angeles union and Cuts Hurts Kids are live tweeting as events unfold.

Apparently, there is a heavy police presence right now.
