Over the past few days, I've been documenting rallies and other events by groups in opposition of the new immigration law, SB1070, in Arizona.
|Manuela Robles, 9, wrote this poem at school in response to the new law.|
|Prayer services were held nightly at the State Capitol lawn in the days leading up to the Judge's ruling.|
|Woman cries out in fear as she prays in front of the Capitol on July 28th.|
|Tom Horne, candidate for Attorney General, talks to media in front of the Capitol after the Judge's ruling is released.|
|Overnight vigil begins with Mass on the Capitol lawn on July 28th.|
|Vigil Procession from State Capitol to St. Matthew Catholic Church begins at sunrise, 4:30 AM on July 29th.|
|Interfaith Service at St. Matthew's.|
|Protesters gather in front of the Maricopa County Courthouse.|
|One of many who nearly fainted from the heat.|
|One of 50 protesters who were arrested during a civil disobedience act that took place in front of the courthouse. Seconds later, he is crying hysterically and dragged off by police. (video coming soon)|
Kinda sad, but come on buddy... you signed up for it. Grow some huevos.
|Vigil Procession from St. Matthews Church to State Capitol, where hundreds of Californians joined in the anti-SB1070 rally.|
|Storm rolls in just before Californians leave back home.|
The rain started falling and we fled with our cameras for some Mexican comfort food after a very long, hard day's work.
I will be editing the audio and video I captured throughout the days as well. Still some more events going on tonight and tomorrow, but just thought I'd upload these to give you a sneak peek at what I'm seeing on my side of the lens.
More coming soon. Peace and blessings- B
