Los Angeles: Police Responding to Protest Against ‘War with Syria,’ 1 Arrested Already

A growing protest against “war with Syria” is stopping traffic around Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue in Los Angeles, and police have already arrested one person.

The protesters, calling the event “Last Stand: No War With Syria,” said on Facebook that “We are peacefully protesting the escalation of US military involvement in Syria, as well as the complete disregard of the will of the American people in the decision to begin a new war.”

“We in no way support the actions of the Assad regime, but are convinced that US intervention will instigate more violence and suffering,” the protest organizers added.

The event was scheduled to start at 2 p.m. Several hundred people are there, according to posts and pictures shared on Twitter. Over 2,500 people said they were going on Facebook.

LAPD’s Hollywood bureau said via Twitter: “Anti-war in Syria protest has drawn a couple of hundred protestors to Hollywood and Highland. Traffic is terrible. Avoid the area.”

Greg Palast/The Secret End-Game Memo

In the late 1990s, top US Treasury officials secretly conspired with a small cabal of banker big-shots to rip apart financial regulation across the planet. When you see 26.3% unemployment in Spain, desperation and hunger in Greece, riots in Indonesia

By Greg Palast for Vice Magazine
When a little birdie dropped the End Game memo through my window, its content was so explosive, so sick and plain evil, I just couldn't believe it.
