Tonight, Answer LA and the LA Independent Media Center are both calling for an “Emergency Protest of Bush’s Plan to Escalate Iraq War”.

Answer LA has announced a 5pm start at Wilshire and Western Blvds. (more info here)

The LA Independent Media Center lists no less than twenty different protests in Los Angeles, Ventura, and Orange Counties, with start times from 1pm through 7pm, depending on location. (full listing here)

If anyone has further info on possible traffic disruptions, or if they happen to know of a “magic formula”, please leave it in the comments.
