Los Angeles Radical Landmarks
Welcome to the LA-ABCF's LA Radical Landmark site! Here you will find information about historical sites and struggles in the Los Angeles area. Be aware that some information presented may not be condoned by this organization. For example, information on this site includes people who informed during the red scare. Because such circumstances have played a critical role in radical history, we have felt it necessary to include landmarks related to this history. Please visit this site regularly because we are always updating information. Soon we hope to organize radical tours in the LA area, so please check back now and then. We hope you enjoy.
