Garcetti's List

El Grito

Last night, hundreds of Angelenos attended our city's El Grito festivities on Olvera Street.

El Grito celebrates Mexico's independence and is not only part of Mexico's history, but a part of Los Angeles's cultural heritage.


I'd like to thank Consul General of Mexico David Figueroa Ortega and Jose Duarte, President of the Comite Civico Patriotico, for joining us.

Celebrating the New Echo Park Solar "BigBelly"

Today we installed a solar-powered “BigBelly” trash can on the corner of Echo Park and Sunset Boulevard. Because it has a built in compactor, the BigBelly unit can hold four times as much trash as the average trash can making it more cost-effective and more environmentally- friendly than traditional trash disposal options.

The BigBelly unit, which was funded through city grants, will help prevent overflow trash from ending up in storm drains and in places like Echo Park.

Thank you to everyone who helped make the BigBelly installation possible, including the Trash Abatement Project.

The Jewish Community Weaponized Hip Hop Against Black People

Posted by Mistah Wilson on November 23, 2023 at 9:47am 0 Comments

Is it not yet painfully obvious that the so-called European Jewish community has profited off of the destruction of African American families all across the world?Are we really going to take the stance that conscious Hip Hop wouldn't have sold records? Whole fan bases have been ousted over the special interests of the Jewish community. Lyor Cohen, a so-called Jewish man who happens to be a record label executive, went on Breakfast Club radio station in New York and attributed the destructive nature of Hip Hop to his need to feed his own family. When bad things happen to black people, no one cares because it was more or less intended to happen. But, when the so-called Jewish community is threatened or under attack, tha whole world come to their aid? Who are these people exactly?…

"Altar Ego" song by Glory Shalom | Rating & Review by Mistah Wilson

Posted by Mistah Wilson on January 29, 2023 at 9:12pm 0 Comments

I caught a straight up vibe with this song. The intro led me into euphoria leading up to tha chorus dropping. It's tha kind of song that makes you want to move even if you're not much of a dancer. The "breaking free" part of her lyrics is just so beautifully sung. Gotta love a singer who uses her voice to glorify God. Let's talk about tha power of her lyrics for a moment. It's empowering, to say tha least. "I won't be defined by mistakes from my past, ...by labels placed on me," those are words that virtually anyone can pull strength from. Not a bad song for tha intro and title song to tha EP. "I won't be slave to fear or negativity, ...or by my own insecurities." Glory demonstrates tha voice of an angel all throughout this song.…
