Title supplied by cataloger. Photograph caption dated August 12, 1986 reads, "About 500 men, women and children carrying signs and shouting "No prison in East L.A." march up and down Olympic Boulevard, protesting the proposed site of a 1,700-bed, medium security state prison. L.A. Councilman Richard Alatorre, carrying a sign that read "No jail. Protect our children," yesterday joined the protest sponsored by the Mothers of East Los Angeles. Richard Polanco, a former Alatorre aide and successor to the councilman in the state Assembly, cast a key committee vote for the proposal and later reversed his vote when the measure came before the Assembly. "I have no control over what Mr. Polanco does," Alatorre said. "Ultimately he voted against it." The state Senate is expected to vote on the proposal next week."
