They say they are staying until he leaves.

They are Black Lives Matter activists, who have set up a tent camp at Eagle Rock.

He is besieged by Los Angeles City Councilman Kevin de León.

Pressure continues on De León and fellow city councilor Gil Cedillo to resign over the mayoral race scandal. The council is due to meet virtually today – conducting business for the first time in a week after last week’s meetings were interrupted by protesters.

An LAPD officer measures a distance of 300 feet from Kevin de León’s home, advising protesters they cannot legally approach.
