La Playa Carmel Siege, Day Two: Increased Police Pressure
Alex Darocy
Former workers, and their union representatives from Unite Here Local 483, continued a two-day "siege" of La Playa Hotel in Carmel on July 21. The second day saw a stronger police presence than the first, with authorities placing increased pressure and demands on demonstrators. The first day of the demonstration was held continuously for 12 hours from 7am to 7pm on Friday June 20, and Saturday's demonstration continued the "siege" for another 12 hours. The demonstrations were planned to send a strong message to the public to boycott the hotel until management rehires the over 100 workers who lost their jobs after the recent change in ownership and subsequent remodeling of the facilities.
