A small group demonstrated outside Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s Windsor Square residence Saturday morning, targeting the mayor over homelessness and calling on him to support the disbandment of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.
Protesters chanted, shouted and hurled expletives via a bullhorn as they stood outside the Getty House, the Tudor revival-style home that serves as the official mayor’s residence. The peaceful demonstration, which drew about 20 people, was organized by the Democratic Socialists of America’s L.A. chapter.
