Puck Lo and Xan West
This is a movement best symbolized by the endless procession of strollers, pushed by students, teachers, and workers. As the sun blazed in the brilliant blue sky overhead seemingly shade-less East Oakland, car horns blared deafening approval all along International Boulevard while ubiquitous Mexico and US flags fluttered. Students and workers, parents and children—boycotting school and work and clad in crisp white t-shirts—trekked the arduous nine mile hike from 98th St and International Blvd. to the Federal Building in downtown Oakland at 14th and Broadway.
