Upwards of 10,000 people joined the Women’s March in Santa Ana Saturday to rebuke the administration of Donald J. Trump and call for equal treatment of women, minorities and immigrants. It was one of many such protests held throughout the nation and the world.
As of 5 p.m. Thursday, 3,791 people had signed a change.org petition asking Knott’s Berry Farm to reverse its decision Tuesday to close a virtual reality scare show featuring patients in a mental institution.
Hundreds of protesters vented their anger at Republican presidential candidate Donald J. Trump outside his rally at the Anaheim Convention Center on Wednesday, taking to the streets, throwing rocks at police and assaulting cars on the road.
Threats of a protest outside a major convention in Anaheim this year likely made the difference in getting members of the city’s council majority to change their minds regarding the new council districts map.
In a rare win for the city’s activists, the City Council Tuesday night voted to restore a council districts map, known as the “people’s map,” that has broad community support and put a Latino-majority district up for election in 2016.
Based on a technicality, the city manager decided not to agendize Mayor Tom Tait’s request to discuss restoring a widely supported council districts map. Tait and his allies say the denial is “outrageous.”
Protesters say over 300 people will show up at Anaheim City Hall Tuesday night to oppose last week’s City Council decision to push back the city’s transition to district elections and scrap a districts map that had broad support.
