About two hundred folks today gathered near the Farmer's Market in Vallejo to protest the occupation of Iraq. Organized by the Solano Peace and Justice Coalition, the rally began with a reading of the Not in Our Name Pledge of Resistance, featured ILWU organizer Clarence Thomas and keynote speaker Fernando Suarez del Solar. On March 27, 2003, Fernando lost his son Jesus when he stepped on a US landmine while fighting in Iraq.
