Occupy San Jose and Voluntarios de la Comunidad join forces Sunday

Occupy San Jose joined forces with Latino advocacy group Voluntarios de la Comunidad on Sunday for a joint rally at City Hall and a march to Plaza de Cesar Chavez.

San Jose's small but committed Occupy movement is increasingly finding common ground with predominantly Latino organizations on issues like predatory lending, the foreclosure crisis and rising social inequality.

Jose Sandoval, the head of Voluntarios de la Comunidad, is a grass-roots champion who advocated statewide for the right of illegal immigrants to apply for driver's licenses. On Sunday, a group of about 30 people marched from Story and King roads in East San Jose to join the Occupy movement in front of City Hall. Many carried signs that read: "No Human Being is Illegal." From there, the two groups planned to march as one to Plaza de Cesar Chavez for a moment of silence at the Man of Fire artwork that commemorates civil rights leader Dr. Ernesto Galarza.

"We are working together," Sandoval said in Spanish.

In the coming weeks, Occupy San Jose and Voluntarios de la Comunidad are collaborating on demonstrations at large banks such as Wells Fargo and Bank of America. On Dec. 12, the protesters will demand that both institutions halt foreclosures and allow people to keep their homes.

Hot damned. 30 protestors took to the streets. There were more than 30 shoppers at Target’s Christmas section tonight.

Oh the humanity!

One bunch of loonies being joined by another bunch of Hispanic loonies.

Check the driving accidents/fatalities/injuries in California and see how many were caused by illegals, with or without licenses. Sandoval wants to kill more people for “the cause”.

SOmebody out to put him in the loonie bin for a while.

When the law falls apart and no one respects it, then society at large is soon to fly apart and collapse in anarchy.

That is the fundamental threat illegal aliens and their acceptance among us entails.
