March for Peace in Iraq/Marcha por la Paz in Irak

On Sunday a peace march demanding an end to war in Iraq was led by the father of the first Mexican youth (Jesus Alberto) to die there for the U.S. military adventure. It went from the young man's high school to the Tijuana Cultural Center to the San Ysidro border crossing and on to Chicano Park in San Diego. These photographs are from the rally at the Cultural Center.

For the first time since the Vietnam war, I picked up pen and paper to write my 3 federal elected officials.

I got back letter that looked a lot like the letters I got back in the 60's.

There is going to be a March in Portland soon. I am going to take my kids to show them a little of "what it was like back then."
