Sentinel has no online coverage of Friday's March for Immigrant Rights in Santa Cruz
by a long history of racism

I am not not publishing this to surprise people. The Santa Cruz Sentinel has a long history of racism in Santa Cruz. The purpose of this post is to point out once again that the Sentinel works against any sense of social justice.

The Sentinel has no online coverage of last Friday's (3-17-06) march and rally for immigrant rights in Santa Cruz.

The Santa Cruz Sentinel Has Zero Online Coverage Of A Very Significant March Against HR 4437 Which Took Place on March 17th, 2006.

They still (as of the time of this post) have no online coverage.

It is as if the march and rally did not take place, if you read the Sentinel website for local news.

Corporate media will never be able to cover the social justice movement with passion.

Here's what people have published on Santa Cruz IMC / Indybay:

Dirty Santa Cruz Secrets: Hanging on Water St. Bridge

For many of today's youth, the only Santa Cruz they've known is the Santa Cruz of progressivism, surfing and the university. But it wasn't too long ago that Santa Cruz, much like other cities of California, was a hotbed of vigilante violence fueled by vehement racism and encouraged by the Santa Cruz Sentinel. Extreme forms of violence and repression of the indigenous peoples, mestizos, and the local Chinese community were heavily used in creating what we now know as Santa Cruz.
