Note: This is an International Day of Protest. Events and Actions will be taking place all over the world. Please wear masks, practice social distancing, and bring a chair for your comfort.
WHY: Our children’s future and our community garden — or being irradiated for the profit of Telecom giants? Our community is standing firm. We refuse to accept a Verizon mega-tower in the middle of our community garden and by our pre-school. Our garden is a community hub and we, our children, and our food will NOT be irradiated. Meanwhile, despite meetings with ELACC, La Casa Del Mexicano, and local elected officials, Verizon has started to break ground to build this 45-foot tower in the middle of our park. We have decided that we will not give up or step down. We are calling on our elected officials, press, family, community, and all those in solidarity with our efforts to preserve a healthy future for our children and planet.
Please join us for a special day of action. Hear from City Council Elect Kevin DeLeon (invited), Boyle Heights Residents and Farmers against 5G Radiation, the Brown Beret National Party/Movement, East LA Parents, 5G Free California, 5G Free Sunland-Tujunga, 5G Free Glendale, Vecinos Unidos (pending), Carlos Montez (CSO)/pending, and others, and be entertained with music and a very special performance by the children of Boyle Heights while helping us save our garden and take a stand against tyranny. We have also invited ELACC and La Casa Del Mexicano to speak.
SPECIAL GUEST PERFORMERS: Akintunde Reggae Band, Catherine McClenahan, a special performance by the children of Boyle Heights, and others to be announced.
