Shouts of "Shame on Canada!" and "Free Zundel Now!" were heard throughout the demonstration as a crowd of about 30 Zundel supporters demonstrated against the incarceration of "Canada's Number One Political Prisoner."
Across the street, about 40 men and women staged a counter-demonstration organized by the Jewish Defense League. Dozens of Los Angeles police stood between the two contending groups to prevent violence.
