Fresno March Honors the Life of Cesar Chavez
The Committee Cesar E. Chavez CO-CE-CHA held the 14th Annual Cesar Chavez Celebration today (Saturday, March 31, 2007. Y TODAVIA SE PUEDE / YES, WE STILL CAN …...…. continue the fight for justice for all people. This year, the theme of the march was to stop all anti-immigrant raids. Organizers and participants at the march said the inhumane raids are causing fear; nightmares in many children who will be separated from their parents who face the risk of being deported daily. Demonstrators demanded that the inhumane raids stop NOW.
