---------------------
Come on down and support Representative Grijalva and the people of Arizona who will be targeted by this bill.  Come down and stand in solidarity against racial profiling and harassment of "suspicious" brown people, native born and immigrant.

This is my first diary and I'm sorry it's mostly pictures. I have to head down to the rally right now. The primary purpose here is to highlight the fact that progressive Arizona is fighting back! The wingnut republicans in the state government are destroying Arizona and we must make our fellow Arizonans aware of just what's in this bill and how it will truly effect their neighbors.  

Pictures from Friday's rally in downtown Tucson:

(I must have been near CosmicDebris!)

Represtatives of the Yaqui community in Tucson lead the march. Yaquis received political asylum by the federal government due to persecution in Mexico.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
