Short Film: Police Coercion inside the LA Immigration Rally

Immigration ProtestsA horrifying short film taken of the LAPD's march into MacArthur Park during a peaceful Immigration Rally.

What's amazing is how shots continued to be heard even as the protesters entered urban areas, endangering innocent onlookers. What were the conditions which permitted this level of oppression on our soil?
