Cesar Chavez march in El Paso, Saturday March 31st 9:00am at the Chamizal
Invitation to the Cesar Chavez March from www.pasodelsur.com:
"Our struggle is not easy. Those who oppose our cause are rich and powerful and they have many allies in high places. We are poor. Our allies are few. But we have something the rich do not own. We have our bodies and spirits and the justice of our cause as our weapons." -Cesar Chavez
"We invite those of you who wish to show solidarity with the Segundo Barrio to participate in another event that will demonstrate the people's opposition to the downtown de-vitalization plan.
On Saturday March 31 a march will be held to celebrate Cesar Chavez Day and to call for social justice in El Paso. This is another opportunity to voice your dissaproval of the downtown plan and to support the people of Segundo Barrio who are facing displacement." - for more info, visit www.pasodelsur.com
