Lassen's Protest Tomorrow
It doesn't have the critical mass of the Occupy movement, but tomorrow at 1 p.m., Los Feliz locals upset at gay-unfriendly Lassen's, the store that took over Nature Mart when it closed, will stage a protest outside the health food store at 1 p.m. Some locals are boycotting Lassen's because of their support of Proposition 8, the anti-gay marriage initiative.
After Nature Mart closed on November 1st, it was replaced by Lassen's, a small natural food store chain that was founded in 1971 in Camarillo. It now has locations throughout the West Valley, Ventura, Santa Barbara, Bakersfield and Fresno.
