In a nearly 7,000 word essay on Monday, Yahoo News hailed a "new generation of anti-gentrification activists" who've rejected "the old, peaceful forms of resistance" for terroristic threats and violence aimed at "frightening off invaders."
"Defend Boyle Heights" is a group of activists, mostly of Mexican descent, who are angry over being "displaced" by white "invaders" in their Los Angeles communities.
Rather than greet the white folks as "immigrants" who are coming to "diversify" and "culturally enrich" their town, the Defend Boyle Heights activists are working to have them expelled "by any means necessary."

LOS ANGELES — The protest at Mariachi Plaza didn’t seem, at first, like a declaration of war.
But this one was different.Their "fighting" consists of vandalizing businesses with messages such as "F--K WHITE ART," inundating "white gentrifiers" with death threats, holding rallies outside their busineses where they chant "don't feel safe, we'll be back" and holding masked, flare lit marches through the streets shouting "gentrifiers get the f--k out!"
Incidentally, in unrelated news, seven Hispanic gang members were indicted in 2016 for fire-bombing African American's homes in the Ramona Gardens housing project of Boyle Heights to drive them out of "their" neighborhoods.
