BOSTON MARCH BACKS BILINGUAL ED (english)
14 Nov 2002
Boston March Backs Bilingual Ed.

Some 500 people joined a spirited march through a Latino neighborhood in Boston on Nov. 2 to urge defeat for a ballot initiative that would eliminate bilingual education in Massachusetts.

Many youth and teachers joined the protest, organized by Sociedad Latino and City Life/Vida Urbana. Ron Unz, a Silicon Valley multi-millionaire, organized the racist ballot question with backing from conservative "think tanks" like the Bradley Foundation. Many anti-war activists from the Act Now to Stop War & End Racism coalition joined the march for bilingual rights, pointing to the Unz initiative
as another front in the government's war at home against immigrants.
