Westwood traffic gummed up *

There's some kind of demonstration on Wilshire Boulevard in front of the Westwood federal building. Ramp traffic on the 405 is stopped and backing up onto the freeway, and the streets near Westwood Village are a mess. Red tells the story.

* 1:40 update: The original protest ended a while ago — students demonstrating over support for undocumented students — but Wilshire has remained closed east of Veteran Avenue due to other police activity.
