Strong Streets of Long Beach Protest and Clean Up

A peaceful protest was planned and gathered outside the Long Beach Police Department in downtown Long Beach off Broadway Avenue, Sunday afternoon.

Once the protest began, hundreds marched together, which soon turned to thousands that filtrated downtown and through parts of the city. Driving back home from downtown was like nothing I ever experienced, with streets blocked off by law enforcement and shops completely boarded up.

In the face of adversity, about a thousand locals came together Monday morning with brooms, and trash bags to help the city clean the mess from the anarchistic acts that left so much destruction from the night before.
