Protesters Bring Signs, Fliers to Auto Show

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

About 50 demonstrators converged on an auto show Saturday to protest what they called the nation’s oil addiction and to criticize automakers that sell sport utility vehicles.

Demonstrators waved signs reading “Oil addiction is not sexy” and handed out fliers to crowds making their way to the Los Angeles Convention Center, where the Greater L.A. Auto Show was being held.
