Organizers say, "Latinos represent nearly 15% of the US population and 11% of the US military, with many serving in combat or hazardous duty occupations. In addition, an estimated 20% of the fallen service members in the early months of the invasion were Latino. With the continued growth of the Latino population and its vital importance to the future of this country, it is time the Latino community become an active and vocal part of the 60%+ of US citizens that oppose this War. It is also time to show the Latino community that they have a voice and a right to fight for peace and stability. We make this call not only to the Latino population but to all those who agree with our message 'No more bloodshed in Iraq'."
The March has passed through many communities, including San Diego, Escondido, Santa Ana, Los Angeles, Rosamond, Keene (La Paz), Fresno, Watsonville, Salinas and San Jose. Read more, including info about the march route and initiators. The march is in need of help such as funding, volunteers, media, organizers, and donations.
