Between Twittering, and Googling for the next great hike, I got an email from Markland about this June 1st Photographers’ Rights Protest in Hollywood and Downtown. Here are the details via Discarted:
Photographers throughout Los Angeles will gather at the Hollywood and Highland Metro Station to peacefully protest against the unnecessary treatment they have received from security guards(particularly the white shirts), LAPD, and LASD while photographing in public places, and on the Metro.
Make signs, T-shirts, and be sure to bring your cameras(still and video). Sign ideas as well as other ideas should be posted here. We need things that will make us stand out as a cohesive group.
Start Time: 11:00am
Location: Hollywood and Highland, 6801 Hollywood Los Angeles, CA 90028
At about 1:30pm we will board the Metro and travel to Union Station
Start Time: 2:00pm
Location: 800 N Alameda St Los Angeles, CA 90012

Perhaps a protest is not really the answer. I say, improv. What if 500 photographers descended into Hollywood & Highland to take pictures of the subway?
Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… MASS HYSTERIA!
