Gang injunction protestors gather at Echo Park Avenue and Sunset Boulevard/Kim Pesenti

A large group of protestors, some dressed up as zombies, took to the streets of Echo Park early Saturday night as part of a demonstration against the Echo Park area gang injunction.

The demonstration, dubbed the Zombie Takeover, was organized by the Youth Justice Coalition, the Inglewood-based organization that has challenged gang injunctions across Echo Park and other parts of Los Angeles. After first gathering at the corner of Echo Park Avenue and Sunset Boulevard, the protests walked and biked down to Echo Park Lake to hear speeches and presentations.

The Echo Park injunction, which also includes Elysian Valley and a portion of Silver Lake, has been approved by a judge but has been challenged in court by the Youth Justice Coalition.
