Black Lives Matter Estimates that as Many as 100,000 Protesters Gathered in Hollywood on Sunday June 7 2020. After more than a week of protests against police violence following the death of George Floyd, Los Angeles saw its largest demonstration so far flood the streets of Hollywood on Sunday. An estimated 100,000 people attended the march, according to Black Lives Matter Los Angeles, which organized the action along with BLD PWR and the rapper YG. Early crowd size estimates by the LAPD placed the number around 20,000, though the throng of protesters stretched unbroken from the TCL Chinese Theatre all the way to Vine Street and beyond. In addition to the march in Hollywood, Sunday saw dozens of other protests throughout the city, including in downtown Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and Compton.

Aside from a few LAPD helicopters monitoring the protest from the sky, there was virtually no visible police presence at the march—a marked departure from earlier protests, which saw large numbers of heavily armed police and National Guardsmen. The LAPD has come under heavy criticism for its tactics in those protests, including accusations of misuse of force and conducting mass arrests of peaceful protesters.

A class action lawsuit filed by Black Lives Matter on Friday alleges that the LAPD illegally detained 2,600 peaceful protesters and engaged in “excessive force with batons and rubber bullets, and prolonged handcuffing and improper conditions of confinement.”
