On Friday, June 5th, Santa Monica Boulevard was shut down as more than a thousand people turned out in force in front of the Hollywood Forever Cemetery to protest $80 million in cuts to state HIV programs.
The protest was well documented by an amazing group of grassroot shutterbugs. More pictures after the jump.
Our thanks to everyone who covered the event. These include:
- The ever-tireless Susan Forrest, who has been working nonstop on pictures and videos of the event. She’s got links to everything on this Facebook page.
- Calvin Fleming, who covered the event on Twitter, and took lots of photos as well. His pictures can be found on Flickr.
- L.A. Indy Media Center also has lots of pictures.
Please check back regularly as we add new photo collections. Thanks again for being a part of this fight!
