Protesters banged pots and pans and clapped across the street from Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s official residence Thursday in the 10th consecutive day of demonstrations in an attempt to persuade President-elect Joe Biden not to appoint Garcetti to his cabinet.
Los Angeles Police Department officers stood on the sidewalk in front of Getty House as usual.
The theme of the protest is “Defund the police,” according to organizers.
Black Lives Matter-Los Angeles and Ground Game LA have vowed to conduct a demonstration every day until Biden commits to not appointing Garcetti to the cabinet. They are critical of Garcetti’s handling of homelessness, public transportation and other issues.
Garcetti has repeatedly said he has not sought a position with the incoming Biden administration.
