Angelenic reports that a tree planting ceremony held on Saturday at the new Vista Hermosa Park near downtown was interrupted by a group of women and children who believe the Los Angeles Unified School District [LAUSD] and the city "manipulated facts to build on the toxic site, and then [gave] the land away to the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy (SMMC). Via the blog: “You sold us out!” cried one protester. “You threw people off this land and now you’re giving it away to the Santa Monica Conservancy. You talk about low-income housing, and then you threw out low income people!” Full gallery of the park can be seen here. (Photo via Angelenic) [Angelenic]
