Photos: Group Protests L.A.'s Boycott of Arizona
About 50 supporters of Arizona's immigration's law SB 1070 took to the steps of City Hall this morning, protesting the L.A. City Council's recent decision to boycott certain activities within the desert state. Many opposition points of views were heard: from a sign reminding the public of Jamiel Shaw -- he was the teen murdered by an undocumented immigrant and known gang member in 2008 -- to cat calls about the LADWP owning power plants in Arizona.
Radio host Tony Katz pointed out that the city's resolution to boycott Iran has been sitting untouched with no action since last year. "They've had that motion for a year," he said. "They are not doing anything about Iran, which, by the way, will kill you if you protest on the streets."
For Katz, the group of protesters was representative, not of Republicans, but all people. "They are just people who know there is a right and there is a wrong, and what's wrong is allowing the Los Angeles City Council to attack the people of Arizona."
