May Day 2007 March for Immigrant Rights in Watsonville
by ~Bradley ( bradley [at] riseup.net )
Friday May 4th, 2007 2:33 AM
The MigraWatch Network has become a dynamic grouping of people and organizations based in Watsonville dedicated to providing a welcoming community and securing human rights for all people. MigraWatch came together in September of 2006 following the raids in Santa Cruz, Watsonville and Hollister on September 7th and 8th by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers. In 2006, the Watsonville Brown Berets were the primary organizers of the May Day demonstration, however this year's march and rally was organized by the multidimensional MigraWatch Network. Thousands of families marched through the streets of Watsonville and Pajaro to protest ongoing immigration raids taking place throughout the U.S. and to honor the amazing contributions immigrants make to our community. After the march, a rally with speakers and musicians in the Plaza, and a performance by White Hawk Dancers, the Guerilla Drive-In screened the new documentary Crossing Arizona outside the Brown Berets office in downtown Watsonville.
