  • High school students from Boyle Heights, East Los Angeles and El Sereno are planning to walk out of classes today and march on City Hall in the most recent anti-Trump demonstration. Those who organized the Eastside Rising Student Walkouts are demanding that L.A. County be declared a sanctuary to “protect and support all individuals and communities being targeted” by the incoming White House administration, according to a press release. The LAPD is asking parents to advise their children to abide by the law and warn them that they are subject to arrest for blocking vehicles, vandalism, curfew violations and failing to obey orders to disperse, says the L.A. Times.
  • About 500 people, mostly women, gathered at the Silver Lake Meadow on Sunday afternoon to picnic and protest against Trump’s presidential victory. Those who attended gathered in circles to express their anger and share ideas for action. L.A. Times
  • Kumail Nanjiani and Thomas Middleditch, co-stars of the HBO show Silicon Valley,  said they were harassed by a pair of white, male Trump supporters at a Silver Lake bar on Friday night. The two Trump supporters were thrown out by a bouncer. “This happened at a bar in LA surrounded by ppl. I can’t imagine what it must be like to be someone who looks like me in other parts,” said Nanjiani, a Pakistani-American comedian, said on Twitter.   USA Today
  • A Hollywood anti-development activist is one of a dozen candidates who have so far indicated that they run against incumbent Mitch O’Farrell in next year’s Council District 13 election. L.A. Times

  1. Any idea what bar that incident happened at in Silver Lake? If I was there I would’ve stopped those baby Trumpsters!

  2. anyone know which bar in silver lake the incident occurred at?

  3. At some point the bar needs to be named to maintain the credibility of the story. Can someone get a statement from the bouncer?
