LAX Demonstrators Arrested After Disrupting Traffic - Westwood-Century City, CA Patch

On one of the busiest travel days of the year, thousands of workers descended Wednesday on Century Boulevard -- the primary route to Los Angeles International Airport -- to protest what their union called unfair labor practices by an airport contractor.

Police began arresting those in a group of protesters who sat in the intersection of Century and Sepulveda boulevards. Los Angeles police Officer Venus Hall says that 13 people were arrested. The protesters had otherwise dispersed, she said.
