One June 1, 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.

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
