The city of LA is expected to shut down Echo Park Lake, put up a fence, and move out all the unhoused people living there this week. The logistics are unclear, even as City Councilman Mitch O’Farrell says all the people experiencing homelessness there will be offered a bed. KCRW hears from people protesting the impending closure.
