Discarted attended the pro-Palestinian protest at the Federal Building in Westwood in Los Angeles this past Saturday. Hundreds came out to show their support for Palestine as the conflict in Gaza rages on, and as expected, passions were on display, tensions were high and the LAPD was in full, excessive riot mode.
LAPD arrests a protester for unknown reasons (below). Seconds before someone climbed a flagpole to hang the Palestinian flag next to the US one, leading to chaos between police and Palestinian activists.
As the crowd grew larger (below), people confronted the LAPD, yelling “Let him go…Let him go!”, forcing the police, clad in riot gear, to back away and point their rubber bullet guns at peoples’ chests just three feet from them.
