Arizona Law SB1070 protest in LA

ARIZONA LAW SB1070 PROTEST
DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES

On Monday, July 26, protesters  held signs over the 101 freeway overpasses in downtown Los Angeles to protest the controversial Arizona SB1070 law. The group held the banners in the morning and afternoon rush hours as cars passing honked in support. This undoubtedly added more strain to the typical LA rush hour traffic. The law is set to go into effect this Thursday.
