A vigil in honor of victims of the deadly Oakland, California, warehouse fire briefly turned into a political confrontation Monday night as saddened, angry participants shouted down the city’s mayor with obscenities and boos.The anger was in stark contrast to the reception given to Jesse Arreguín, the newly sworn-in mayor of Berkeley, home to the University of California’s main campus.
Arreguín said the fire shouldn’t be used as a pretext to shut down nontraditional living spaces like old warehouses.
“Artists must have a safe place to live and to work,” he said to loud cheers.
