STATEMENT: Mayor Garcetti on the departure of the National Guard
June 7, 2020
“The California National Guard is departing Los Angeles this evening. A small number of units will be stationed nearby until June 10 to provide emergency support if needed.
“I’m proud that our city has been peaceful this week — and that our residents are leading a powerful movement to make Los Angeles more just, equitable, and fair for Black Angelenos, communities of color, and all of our workers, youth, and families.
“We thank the members of the Guard for their willingness to serve — to ensure the safety of demonstrators, businesses, residents, and everyone in our city.” — Mayor Eric Garcetti
