Yesterday, my wife and I attended the End the Fed protest in LA and had a great time. It was hard to tell what the exact numbers ended up being at the bank, but it was probably around 100-200 people. We also had two great speakers give short speeches at the event. One was Anthony J. Hilder, a radio show host and documentary film produce, and the other was Hemant Kathuria, a Branch Manager for Peter Schiff’s LA office of Euro Pacific Capital. After the big rally in front of the Fed, we split into two groups to disseminate information in more populated areas around town. Therefore, one group went over to UCLA, and one group went to downtown Hollywood. Having an interesting experience the last time I went to Hollywood with our ETF group, I decided to go to Hollywood again so that my wife could experience it with me. After a quick lunch at Mel’s Diner (the one next to Riply’s Believe it or Not), we then walked over to Hollywood and Highland to join the protesters waving signs and handing out fliers. We probably had around 50 people total spread over the four corners of the street and helped wake up a lot of people (sadly, many people had to be taught just what the Fed was).
Here’s a short little video I made last night using some of the video clips from phase one of the rally in front of the Federal Reserve building:
