Cornelius Day Labor: Part uno
Today's day labor protest in Cornelius was amazing! (To see last weeks stuff scroll down a little ways or go here)
Our successes from last week were noticable right off the bat. First, the "day labor" signs were gone!
We also had a good group of people including some of our Iraq war veterans and candidate for governor Mary Starrett.
But the best part was that the illegal alien day laborers went from "looking for work" to being political activists. Of course, they fumbled this one a little bit...
We all remember how well the Mexican flag went over last time right? It was like getting a gift when they brought the flags out. (In response to our large American flag purchased and held by our veterans)
Some crude, handmade signs were hastily made. Needless to say that the message was a little muddled, or mispelled, on many of them.
Plese now minutemen in Oregon? OK... that one is almost as funny as the "go back to inglan" sign.
This is my "just got back" post. I haven't even looked at all the pictures yet but I'm going to eat something and do another with a longer narrative. Come back.
