Activists in Los Angeles are currently occupying the space outside the city’s Metropolitan Detention Center. The facility, located mere blocks away from Los Angeles City Hall, (reminder: Los Angeles is NOT a Sanctuary City) is being used by ICE agents as an immigrant detention center.
The occupation is ongoing; so long as the violence and injustice perpetrated by ICE agents continue, they will be met by those standing in solidarity with the oppressed. If you are interested in joining the protest, please join at 535 Alameda Street in Downtown Los Angeles. Organizations including Ground Game LA, LA Against ICE, March and Rally, AIM SoCal, POWER, and ICE out of LA are currently supporting the effort.
