03/25/06 [via cel phone] Downtown Immigration Rights protestUpdate My first Tokyo moment on the Red Line. I got on at Civic Center and at each subsequent stop leading out of downtown, more people would get on the train. We were shoved so close together that I may have impregnated the guy in front of me. Oddly when I got off at Hollywood/Highland, there was nary a Mexican, Central American or South American to be seen.
03/25/06 [via cel phone] Downtown Immigration Rights protestUpdate I didn't set out to photograph the anti-immigration reform bill protest. One of my day jobs is at the Los Angeles Times and so it happened that I was at a great vantage point to document the march. Although my intention is to have StardustLA be about Los Angeles for both Angelenos and visitors, I felt this was too important a moment in the history of Los Angeles and the United States to not document and share.
03/25/06 [via cel phone] Downtown Immigration Rights protestUpdate This was taken from the 2nd floor balcony of the L.A. Times building on the corner of 1st and Broadway. The people towards the upper left corner of the photo going down to the lower right are on 1st, while the swath of people heading towards the upper right are on Broadway.
