Central City Association, Jan Perry and DTLA 1% threaten Skid Row Residents…with Arrest?
Last week, on November 8th, LA CAN members again protested outside the Orpheum Theater during the Central City Association’s second mayor candidate breakfast. This time the CCA was hosting Councilmember Jan Perry – and, this time, CCA and the Downtown LA 1% called in the LAPD to try to shut us down.
After trying to silence the free speech rights of Skid Row residents by stating that we were “disturbing the peace”, we were informed by LAPD that the individuals inside the meeting – business leaders, Central City Association members, etc. – were going to arrest us. Please watch the video above to see just how it went down.
