May Day 2008 in Watsonville: Los Derechos Humano Start w/ Immigrants
Hundreds of families, students and workers participated in May Day activities in Watsonville which included free legal consultations, a rally in the plaza with speakers, musicians, face painting and a brinkolin (jump house) for kids. Homemade signs stated, human rights start with immigrants, legalization now, end the war, we are not criminals, fuck Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), lets help people!, yes we can, and asked the fundamental question, "Whatcha gonna do when they come for you?"
After the march and rally ended and the sun went down, there was an outdoor screening of "Wetback: The Undocumented Documentary." The filmmakers follow Nayo and Milton, migrants from Chinandega, Nicaragua as they cross through Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico, and the United States in their attempt to reach Canada.
It was a nice surprise to see that someone printed and displayed photos from SC-IMC of the student protest against HR 4437 in Watsonville on March 31st, 2006.
