Latino Families Reclaim Right to Stay in Highland Park Despite Urban Development

from IQ Multimedia:

by Bertha Rodríguez Santos

   While awaiting the arrival of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti to help celebrate historic North Figueroa Street alongside developers, merchants and property owners, a group of activists overran the "FigJam" event on Saturday to denounce the displacement of hundreds of local families. Many of the displaced are Latino families that had to move to other areas or have become homeless due to urban development and gentrification. In the end, the mayor was a no-show for the event, but the activists conducted their street performance anyway and distributed information amongst those who did attend the festival.

The Campers Return to Sycamore Grove

by LA1 News

   The line of recreational vehicles taking up residency across the street from Sycamore Park have returned. The campers were towed last month, in what one of CD1 Council Member Gil Cedillo's staff aides described as a public health hazard. Some local residents had been calling for their removal for over a year. Parents and staff at Arroyo Seco Museum Science Magnet School have described walking with their students past the area, witnessing disgusting sights of urine and feces-filled buckets outside the vehicles, and open drug use. After the murder of 19-year-old homeless youth Kaelyn Michael Tarin on January 17, just 200 meters or so away from the staging area, it appeared that enough was enough. The vehicles were quickly towed away one morning, forcing the vehicle owners to find somewhere else to go.

That North Korean Satellite is Orbiting Over Louisiana Right Now

by David Bloom

The "scientific" satellite which North Korea claims it launched into orbit atop the Kwangmyongsong-4, long-range missile Saturday was apparently a success. North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) has officially added the satellite to its list of official devices in orbit around the Earth, and it is passing over the state of Louisiana right now.

Actually, according to NORAD, North Korea now has two satellites circling the Earth. The first satellite, which the regime claims to be the result of its third successful long-range missile launch into space, was placed into orbit in 2012. Saturday's second successful satellite launch was North Korea's fourth venture into space. Launched for "weather forecasting" and other scientific purposes according to the regime, it is also likely to be collecting images when it passes over the United States.
