LOCO, my favorite cleverly acronymed activist crew doesn't take shit from nobody. When it's not protesting the hotel construction on Orchard and Allen, it's going after Community Board 3 for taking Hollywood blood money.
So far, the board has received a total of $4,800 from film shoots, McWater said: $1,000 from “Love Monkey;” $300 from “Rescue Me;” $3,000 from “RENT;” and $500 from “Law and Order,” which had planned to use the board’s office for a shoot, then backed out, but paid the board anyway.

If you ask me, they could be taking more. I mean, are you going to get real looking tenements with fire escapes in frickin' Vancouver?

Unfortunately, the LOCO website has disappeared. I hope that this is not the end for the organization.
