Members of the Silverlake/Sunset Junction chapter of the “Coffee Party” protested outside of Bank of America at 2420 Glendale Blvd. on Sunday, May 2, 2010, against local home foreclosures performed by big financial institutions that have benefited from what amounts to corporate welfare. The Coffee Party is a political movement that evolved as a response against bitter rhetoric and gross representations that saw media play week after week as major news outlets covered the Tea Party protests. The Coffee Party in turn supports lively political debate amongst elected officials and citizens alike, but also believes those discussions should be civil. The Silverlake chapter of the Coffee Party is one of the first and most well-established gatherings of this nationwide movement. As Coffee Party members began to see Wall Street reforms becoming hotly contested between Democrats and Republicans in Congress, they also watched local families being evicted from their homes, from banks that received hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars in bailout funds. Meanwhile average people suffer throughout Los Feliz, as well the rest of Southern California, and indeed the rest of the country. Beginning at 12:15 pm, Coffee Party demonstrators arrived in front of Bank of America with handmade placards with sobering statistics of the number of homes closed on local city streets. Two homes on Lemoyne St., Four homes on Lake Shore, etc.. 15 Energetic Coffee Party protesters chanted to, “Regulate Wall Street! Bail out Main Street!” with local drivers honking their support as they drove by. \Fliers were passed out on the street to passerbys, informing them of an important issue that impacts the country, as well as their very neighborhoods. The protest began to wind down at 1:45, with seven die-hard Coffee Part members remaining. Whether their actions will have any impact remains to be seen, but it’s clear that as the Coffee Party watches decisions that affect citizens in Los Feliz, they will be an active voice in defense of their community.

Currently, there are 90 Neighborhood Councils in Los Angeles. The Great Griffith Park Neighborhood Council (GGPNC) was officially certified by the City of Los Angeles in June 2002 to represent the areas of Los Feliz, Griffith Park, Franklin Hills, and portions of East Hollywood & Silverlake. This Council has a strong influence over planning issues that directly affect our homes, our favorite restaurants, our streets, our schools, our parks, and nearly every facet of the quality of life in Los Feliz.
Most city councils have a small number of officials who are appointed (Los Angeles city has 4.5% ) and the remaining is elected. Here, with the GGPNC, the numbers are actually quite different, 45% are appointed. That is not a typo you just read, it is an accurate number, 45% of the board is appointed and only the remaining 55% of the members are elected. The problem with this is that the members do not represent an accurate portrait of the community. Most of the members do not have school age children, and thus may not have strong interests in bettering community schools. They are not ethnically diverse to represent the many ethnicities who work, live, eat, and play in the Los Feliz community. The appointed members have been focused on constancy. They are not open to change, as a matter of fact they hope things remain as they have always been…in their favor. What may have worked for the area years ago, is not necessarily what is best for our community now. As the times change, our board members must reflect the times and people of the area. We were surprised to find out that board members do NOT even have to live in the area. Really? ??How would they empathize about problems RESIDENTS living here may face or the joy and pride each resident feels to say they LIVE in Los FELIZ!
