VIDEO: Protestors in Los Angeles officially shut down yesterday’s city council meeting as they demand that all council members who were caught on the racist audio that leaked earlier this week resign

Protestors in Los Angeles officially shut down yesterday’s city council meeting. (Read More Here).

They demanded that all council members who were caught on the racist audio that leaked earlier this week resign. 

As protestors (from BLM-LA, LA Tenants Union, and elsewhere) demand justice, the California Attorney General has announced they are now investigating the situation.

As we previously shared, LA council President Nury Martinez was caught on a profanity-laced recording making racist remarks about a white council member’s Black child. She claimed her colleague, Mike Bonin, “handled his young Black son as though he were an accessory,” further describing the Bonin’s son as a “changuito,” or in English, “a little monkey.”

Other council members Kevin de León and Bill Cedillo were also condemned, as they were heard laughing and making jokes on the recording as well. Martinez announced her resignation on Sunday (October 9), but on Monday, she updated that she’s taking responsibility for what she said, and will actually take a leave of absence instead of resigning. De León and Cedillo also apologized but have not resigned. Meanwhile, Federation of Labor President Ron Herrera, who was also at the meeting where the comments were made, did resign on Sunday (October 9).
