What They Leave Out...

Is often the real story.

LOS ANGELES - Sheriff's deputies evicted people from an urban community garden to make room for a warehouse Tuesday, touching off a furious protest in which actress Daryl Hannah and others climbed into a walnut tree or chained themselves to concrete-filled barrels. More than 40 people were arrested.

Authorities cut away branches and used a fire truck to bring down the "Splash" actress and another tree-sitter, who raised their fists as they were removed. Hannah was arrested.

"I'm very confident this is the morally right thing to do, to take a principled stand in solidarity with the farmers," she said by cell phone before the fire truck raised officers into the tree. *snip*
Okay, so far this appears to be your typical Hollywierd stuff. Actors can't help themselves when confronted by a dramatic scene, no matter how stupid.

Now here's where it gets interesting...(interesting part bolded for your reading pleasure)
Dozens of protesters chanted, "We're here and we're not going to leave!" in Spanish, blew whistles and blocked traffic in the surrounding streets. Protesters linked arms and sat on the tracks. Officers dragged some protesters away.
"In Spanish?"

I do realize that LA is no longer part of America, but this blows my mind.  Now why does that chant sound so familiar?  It's on the tip of my tongue, well no matter, It'll come to me.

Shhh, don't tell anyone, but I think these "farmers" are actually illegal aliens.  Shhh, I don't want to get in trouble here.
