Anti-vaxxers organized protest in LA to “make the area unsafe” and “hurt the businesses”
A series of videos from the streets of Los Angeles show how a gang of radical protesters are attacking people for no apparent reason and harassing local small businesses.
Some of the banners are full of conspiracy theories against humanity.
Far right militants spotted alongside violent anti-vaxxers today. The organizer of these anti-vaxxer demonstrations admitted that their goal was to make the area unsafe and hurt the businesses there, unless they bow to the anti-vaxxer demands. https://t.co/EQySC3xIyy— Vishal P.

Allegedly, the protesters are demanding that they be given a choice, but their actions are directed against society and against local business owners who have nothing to do with Covid restrictions, mandatory masks or vaccinations.
Today, violent anti-vaxxers returned to Harlowe. They chased several journalists into a Trader Joe’s across the street. Trader Joe’s locked the doors & waited for deputies from @LASDHQ, who never arrived.— Vishal P. Singh (They/He) (@VPS_Reports) July 31, 2021
The LA Sheriff’s Department has allowed far right violence all week long. https://t.co/N7n0jaeuFO
Also hit were media workers who were driven into a Trader Joe’s by an angry mob. The owner and journalists called the police out of fear of an escalation of the conflict, but no police patrol arrived to help.
Journalists trapped inside of a Trader Joe’s as an anti-vaxxer lynch mob menaces them. Trader Joe’s called @LASDHQ over and over, but deputies never responded. LASD is sanctioning far right extremist violence in West Hollywood. https://t.co/X1JKYlUV6a— Vishal P. Singh (They/He) (@VPS_Reports) July 31, 2021
During the violent protests, another journalist was also injured. In one of the videos, Vishal P Singh is seen filming one of the activists, but suddenly gets hit on the sly. Trying to strike back, a flurry of blows falls on him.
Later, the journalist was hospitalized with multiple fractures of the facial bones.

Anti-vaxx violent protests continued in West Hollywood. One of the organizers of these extreme actions admitted that their goal was to make this area unsafe.
TODAY: Even more examples of anti-vaxxers at Harlowe assaulting the community of West Hollywood. As a reminder, an organizer for these rallies admitted on Instagram live that their goal was to make this area unsafe.— Vishal P. Singh (They/He) (@VPS_Reports) July 31, 2021
With the help of @LASDHQ, they are steadily accomplishing this. https://t.co/pYXiNVq7we
