The 11th consecutive day of demonstrations outside Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s official residence was held Friday in an attempt to persuade President-elect Joe Biden not to appoint Garcetti to his cabinet.
The theme of the protest will be “#4aDayNotOkay,” a reference to the average number of homeless people in Los Angeles who have died each day in 2020, according to organizers.
Protesters banged pots and pans and clapped across the street from Getty House Thursday when the theme of the protest was “Defund the police.”
Los Angeles Police Department officers stood on the sidewalk in front of the mansion as usual.
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.
