After numerous hate-related symbols and messages were found spray-painted on Palisades Charter High School over the weekend, roughly 300 students and community activists gathered Monday morning to protest the vandalism.

Demonstrators called for an investigation into the graffiti, which a neighbor reported about 6:30 a.m. Sunday, said Lt. Cheron Bartee of Los Angeles School Police Department. The anti-racism demonstration was peaceful, she said.

Photographs on social media showed students gathered at a common area in the campus, at 15777 Bowdoin St. in Pacific Palisades.

Symbols and phrases that referenced the Ku Klux Klan, Jews, African Americans and LGBT people, were found on city property outside the campus, on the school’s signage and a mural, Bartee said. Police believe the writings, which have since been covered, were spray-painted overnight.
