Friday's LA Protests: When, Where And What We Know, June 5
Protests are continuing for the 10th day in Los Angeles, where thousands are gathering to take a stand against systemic racism and the many recent police killings of black Americans, including George Floyd in Minneapolis.
Here's what we know about where and when things are happening today. This is by no means an exhaustive list.
SOUTH L.A., 10 a.m. – 1 p.m., Western Ave between Florence and Manchester
Over 500 people signed up to clean the streets of South L.A. as a form of protest today.
Diamond Jones, who organized the event, said that she picked this location because of the number of black business in the neighborhood. She said she and others wanted to beautify the streets as away of showing support, especially for those who might not feel like marching or other forms of protest are right for them at the moment.
"Everyday I see how my community was affected by the 1965 and Rodney king riots and how we still have yet to recover," she wrote on Instagram. "Instead of protesting and walking I wanted to protest and clean. We will be cleaning Western ave from Florence to Manchester."
