LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Political activists today staged a “die-in” outside a federal building in downtown L.A. in protest of the deal to lift the debt ceiling.
Demonstrators wore black clothing and skull masks, carried black roses and held signs with slogans such as, “Cause of death: cuts to meal program.”
“We understand that Congress is about to increase the debt limit and end the government shutdown. But they’re only kicking the can down the road to January and February, and the problems may come up again then. We still have the problem of the sequester cuts,” one protestor told KNX1070’s Claudia Peschiutta.
