No a la Migra! ~ No a la Guerra!

Fernando Suarez del Solar
Proyecto Guerrero Azteca

Rev. Sal Alvarez
United Farm Workers

The recent mass marches in support of immigrant rights were the largest people's mobilizations in the history of the country. This historic outpouring of people power will forever change the political landscape of the United States. In San Francisco, marchers vigorously chanted "No a la Migra! No a la guerra!" ("No to the INS! No to war!") Can this massive new movement for civil rights be a force to help end the war in Iraq? How can peace activists and non-immigrants support the growing immigrant rights movement?

Fernando Suarez del Solar is the founder of Proyecto Guerrero Azteca, a counter-recruitment organization. His son Jesus, a Marine, was killed in the early part of the Iraq war. Reverend Salvador Alvarez is a Chaplain with the United Farm Workers union.
