South Central Farm Security Member Describes 5am Raid

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

LAist was fortunate enough to sit down with a member of the South Central Farmers Support Coalition yesterday, one who was at the controversial farm the morning that it was raided last week by law enforcement, who forcibly evicted protesters and activists.

The City Council will hear from members of the South Central Farm today at 9:30am at City Hall (John Ferraro Council Chamber, 3rd floor, 200 N. Main St) during the public comments portion of their meeting. The public is invited; those who show up before 10am can choose to address the council as well.
