Hundreds of protesters of Lithuanian heritage gathered Sunday at a Silver Lake church to worry. Wearing black ribbons of mourning for the 13 killed Saturday by Soviet troops and lapel pins in the colors of the national flag, they rallied on the front steps of St. Casimir's, a Lithuanian Roman Catholic parish. Luana Masiulis was there, but her thoughts were elsewhere.

Lithuanian activists, incensed over President Bush's reaction to a Soviet crackdown on the Baltic republic, lined the steps of Los Angeles' City Hall on Monday and called for a sterner, more decisive condemnation of the Red Army's assault on civilians in their homeland.

As Soviet tanks rolled into Vilnius in January to wrest control from the pro-independence Lithuanian parliament, emigres of that tiny Baltic state gathered in a small Atwater Village office, staffing phones and fax machines day and night to keep abreast of the developments in their faraway homeland.
