LA CAN Releases a NEW Short Documentary on the Historic Operation Skid Row Festival
We’ve just released a NEW Short Documentary on the Historic Operation Skid Row Festival that was organized by LA CAN and Chuck D of Public Enemy last January 16 on Gladys St. in Skid Row.
The film features performances by Public Enemy as well as narratives and footage that show the devastation and injustice that have come as a result of LAPD’s Safer Cities Initiative (SCI) and Broken Windows policing – and the growing resistance of Skid Row residents who are standing up and fighting back!
It is especially important that this be shared with our folks up in Oakland, where William Bratton (former LAPD Chief and architect of SCI) has just been hired as a “Police Consultant.”
Check it out!
