Student Walkouts at Pajaro Valley and Watsonville High Schools Against HR 4437
by word of mouth
Monday Mar 27th, 2006 2:24 PM
On Monday March 27th, word spread fast around high schools in the Pajaro Valley School District that students would be walking out of their classes at 11:00am in protest of anti-immigrant legislation known as HR 4437. The message of the students was that the United States is nothing without Mexicans and HR 4437 is nothing short of racist.
Word also has it that the Watsonville Police Department responded by deploying officers prepared to use chemical weapons against the students.

I am not sure how things turned out.
