Forty two year-old Tom Morello set aside his guitar and went to bat for immigrants that work in hotels. He was protesting the lack of rights immigrant hotel workers possess. His stage wasn’t a hotel though; rather it was the Los Angeles International Airport. This stage seemed a bit odd, especially considering the stage he usually performs on with his band Audioslave. He was charged with unlawful assembly for refusing to move from the main entry road into the airport on Thursday night. He spent the night in jail and was released the following morning.
