5000+ people took part yesterday (June 23) in downtown San Diego’s rally and march with the theme Families Belong Together,* which kicked off a week of protests that will culminate in nationwide protests on Saturday, June 30th, in support of the basic human right of children and parents to be together (See New York Times article, “Taking Migrant Children From Parents Is Illegal, U.N. Tells U.S.“).
Larry has been busy making pennants, flags and posters for this and future events (Click on the images to see them enlarged).
Our adventure began with taking the trolley and continued with becoming immersed in a very moving and powerful rally and march.
(See Aztec Cleansing ritual*)
See and hear the sights and sounds of this rally and march as recorded by the KUSI News video, “Thousands participate in Families Belong Together protest in downtown San Diego.”
Additional local news coverage:

And this was just a warm-up for participating in the nationwide Families Belong Together event to be held locally at the Waterfront Park (San Diego County Administration Center) next Saturday, June 30th!
