The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.

Background

For the past three years the City of Los Angeles has opted to gentrify downtown Los Angeles regardless of the financial or moral costs involved. Refusing to acknowledge the long-standing and thriving community that exists, they instead moved for total demolition of homes, culture, and life. What the city never anticipated, however, was the community building the power needed to fight back, and build power is what we did.  While we have secured many policy victories so far, we have also shouldered a stunning number of casualties as a result of the brutal and inhumane Safer Cities Initiative. This flawed war on poverty has indeed captured its share of political prisoners, prisoners that we must free.  Stop SCI now!

“It’s not abnormal for the DA to have a policy. But this policy is about targeting the homeless in that area because the city is redeveloping that area. It’s a policy to get people off the streets and into state prison, jumping right over rehab and jail.”  Public Defender—Daily Journal, January 29, 2007

Monday: Bring your tents, sleeping bags,

flashlights, and flags.
