M T started this petition to Los Angeles Councilmember, 14th District Kevin de León and

In El Sereno on the eves of November 25th and 26th, Thanksgiving eve and day, vulnerable families and their supporters were violently and inhumanely brutalized and arrested for trying to secure housing during a pandemic and economic crisis. 

This resulted in the arrest of 62 members of the Los Angeles community. These arrests were unnecessary. And criminal prosecution stemming from them would be inhumane and unjust. Not only will our neighbors have to deal with the stress of facing court appearances and criminalization during a time when Los Angeles is the deadliest place in the world for COVID, but they would be further burdened with economic punishment in the form of devastating fines and fees if convicted. 

The show of force by CHP was terrifyingly excessive. We call on our Los Angeles representatives to request prosecutors not file any charges against these neighbors & supporters, who are only guilty of needing housing and wanting people to be protected and have housing during this widespread turmoil. 

Please help stop this unjust criminalization of people from moving forward.
