Just a heads up to anyone headed near the Disneyland Resort this weekend. There are Protest Demonstrations planned for noon today and tomorrow, the 28th and 29th, in response to recent police officer shootings of members of a local, violent street gang.

The protests are planned to be held at the corner of Harbor Blvd and Disney Way, which is adjacent to the Disneyland Resort and is a major thoroughfare for tourists headed to area attractions. If you are headed near there please be wary as earlier this week other protests over these shooting sparked angry, violent reactions which included significant property damage and led to many arrests.

Comments in chronological order. Most recent at the bottom. Scroll down to respond.
