Marchers Honor Dr. Martin Luther King in the Central Valley
Events held in Davis, Sacramento, Hanford, and Fresno
Events were held throughout the Central Valley in honor of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In Fresno a march and food drive to end childhood hunger in Fresno was held. An Indymedia reporter counted about 500 marchers at the top of the Tuolumne overpass. Police estimated the crowd to be between 750 and 1,000. In Sacramento a large contingent of peace activists marched - this was the first time since the Vietnam War, a "Peace Contingent" – featuring hundreds of people opposed to the war in Iraq officially participated in the Martin Luther King Jr. Day annual march. In Davis, a diverse program of songs, remarks, a video and a Freedom March supporting Dr. King’s dream of a nonviolent society of people living together in peace was held.
