Thousands Join Mexico to SF March in Watsonville to Demand Peace and Justice

by Jeff Paterson, Not in Our Name (jeff [at] paterson.net)
Watsonville, California (March 25, 2006) – Over 2,500 Latino immigrants joined Gold Star Families for Peace member Fernando Suarez del Solar, and Iraq War resister Pablo Paredes for the 5 mile Watsonville leg of their 241 mile trek. Along with chants for peace, many on the march were also moved to take a stand against the draconian anti-immigrant bill HR4437. Along with “Out of Iraq” signs were hundreds of red United Farm Workers flags, a similar looking flags that read “paz” (peace).
