Thousand Join Mexico to SF March for Peace in Salinas

by Jeff Paterson, Not in Our Name (jeff [at] paterson.net)
Salinas, California (March 25, 2006) – A thousand Latino immigrants joined Gold Star Families for Peace member Fernando Suarez del Solar, and Iraq War resister Pablo Paredes this afternoon for the 5 mile Salinas leg of their 241 mile trek. Like the thousands that marched earlier this morning in Watsonville, many were moved to take to the streets to also oppose the draconian anti-immigrant bill HR4437. The historic California Peace March is scheduled to finish in San Francisco on Monday.
