Protesters Outside Los Angeles Mayor Garcetti’s Home Call for Rent Cancellation

Eric Garcetti, Wiki
Several tenants groups held a car protest outside the home of Los Angeles Mayor Garcetti and called for ALL rent to be canceled. He already issued a directive that no one can be evicted for non-payment of rent. Now the landlords cannot pay their mortgages or taxes, so the government – which caused this crisis in the first place – will ‘print’ money to cover their losses.

Despite issuing moratoriums on evictions and freezing rent payments, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti is coming under fire from some groups who say he has not done enough to protect tenants.

Dozens of vehicles streamed past the mayor’s Hancock Park home Sunday. A coalition of groups held a protest in their cars. Activists want the mayor to immediately cancel rent.

Unemployment numbers have skyrocketed during the coronavirus crisis. Protesters say L.A. residents who are already struggling may find it nearly impossible to pay rent.

The mayor banned evictions of those impacted by COVID-19 and issued a temporary rent freeze, but activists say that’s not enough.

“We’re here to support Los Angeles Tenants Union and their push to have the moratorium extended to not paying it because we don’t want to see the problem of homelessness worsen,” said protester Rita Dunn.

Raymond Hovsepian, an attorney representing renters and property owners, says some landlords are also in debt.

“Landlords are also having a tough time,” said Hovsepian. “Some landlords can’t pay their property taxes, some can’t pay their mortgages.”

Protesters are also demanding that vacant hotels be used as emergency housing and say landlords who harass or mislead tenants should be penalized.
