United States

The Federal Building was targeted several times by ACT UP LA, as it represented to them a physical embodiment of a complacent government, holding inside of it the LA office of the Food and Drug Administration. Any demonstrations here also improved visibility for the organization, as it was located at one of Los Angeles’s busiest intersections: Wilshire Blvd. and Veteran Ave.
