A report from the ground in Los Angeles following the first attempted police raid of the Echo Park encampment on March 24th.
Last night, LAPD air units were caught joking over police radio about burning homeless people and activists alive by dumping fuel on them.
LAPD Pilot 1: “I would have dumped [fuel] on Glendale Blvd a long time ago.”
LAPD Pilot 2: “I’ll bring the match.”

The night of March 24th saw some of Los Angeles’s most motivated clashes since last summer’s George Floyd Rebellion. As a result, the sweep was called off for the night.

For anybody who’s ever drank a tall can,
made out on a blanket,
forked over two bucks for an elote,
carved out a space to sleep at night or take a shower,
planted a garden,
gotten into a dumbass fight,
played music from a bluetooth speaker,
seshed with friends
DEFEND THE ENCAMPMENT
DEFEND THE LAKE
DEFEND THE COMMONS
