East Palo Activists/Raging Grannies PART II
PART II of 3. Youth United for Community Action and Raging Grannies at the San Francisco District office OSHA. Fighting against environmental racism and corporate negligence.
After marching for about 30 minutes, the group heads up the stairs to the front of the building where OSHA holds court. They are met at "The Gate" by security.
Granny Gail is amongst those volunteering for a delegation to go into the OSHA office with a list of \"asks\". Already dressed for her role in Granny Street Theater (see Part III) she must have had the security guy wondering what was up. Annie Loya, YUCA organizer, is second from right.

Seen here with camera, the Palo Alto Daily News photographer waits and wonders...what next?

Annie Loya finally convinces an OSHA representative to come downstairs and take a message to "Cora"....later depicted as "the office lady" in Granny street theater (Part III). The crowd celebrates.
There surely must be danger in those purple parasols!
