On a very warm L.A. day, about 200 anti–Breibart/Steve Bannon demonstrators lined up in front of the Breitbart News L.A. bureau in Brentwood. The March 12 protest was an informational campaign to enlighten the mostly liberal neighborhood, where the likes of Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen live, that Breitbart News was located right in their midst. Chants of “fake news!” echoed down San Vicente Boulevard. A small counter-demonstration of 10 or so pro-Trump supporters showed up with a super-loud PA system and attempted to drown out the anti-Breitbarters.
At one point the pro-Trumpers tried to protest right next to the anti-Breitbarters. LAPD officers set up a line between the demonstrators and eventually told the pro-Trumpers to move across the street because they didn’t have a permit to hold an demonstration. Very interesting to see this community and almost every corner of Los Angeles come alive with protests against President Trump, his mouthpieces and his policies.
