'Save Wyverwood' Marches to City Hall to Stop Demolition of Community

A few hundred protestors marched from Boyle Heights to City Hall in a last ditch effort to save the largest housing complex in Los Angeles. The contingent arrived at City Hall where they summoned Council member Jose Huizar who pledged his support for their cause. Although Wyvernwood activists say they’re making inroads in their quest to stop demolition of the 69-acre complex, others say plans for a $2 billion luxury condo and commercial center is a done deal. Pacifica’s KPFK’s Ernesto Arce files this report.
