A United Rally for Immigrant Rights and Elvira Arellano in Los Angeles August 25

Echo Park Community Coalition(EPCC) | Despite the hot and humid weather and a lethargic start because of the sound system , thousands of immigrants, advocates and anti-war protestors brought out a united front for Elvira Arellano and immigrant rights.

The protestors marched down the Olympic/Broadway road, snaked through 2nd street and Los Angeles street and ended at the intersection of Temple and Los Angeles Streets to protest the unjust deportation of Elvira Arellano and for full rights for all immigrants.

The protestors massed early at the Olympic intersection as early as 10:00 AM and started late around 12;45 PM.

The 4,000 to 5,000 strong march/rally was led by “We Are All Elvira and Saulito Coalition” led by the April 7 Coalition composed of Hermanidad Mexicana Nacional and the Latino Movement USA led by Juan Jose Gutierrez, Raul Murillo, Angelina Corona and the ANSWER-LA: the March 25 Coalition led by Javier Rodriguez; CHIRLA led by Angelica Salas and the CARACEN.

Neo-Nazi that attacked pro-immigration supporters in Morristown, NJ charged

One People's Project | That's right. No more of this "Erick_K_W" crap. His name is Erick Karl Weigel, NOT Frederick K. Williams, as said in other stories. We also have to make a correction. His wife's name is not Annette, as has also been said in past articles. It's Joyce. What else have we learned? Oh just that while everyone was trying to make them out as martyrs because they had a little fight with antifa after the rally in Morristown last month, it turns out that they were probably not the innocent little anti-immigrant activists they were painting themselves out to be. No, Erick caught a charge in that little melee, something that no one knew until now. Now we still do not know what fully happened. We won't know that until it goes through the court system. With that in mind we have to ask: why did so many people with so little facts decide that oh, the Nazis were the good guys in this? We really want to know why Robb Pearson of the anti-immigration group ProAmerica Society and Daniel Smeriglio of another group called Voice of the People felt it necessary to wish the two neo-Nazis well without knowing the full story, but to be honest we don't care. We know what they are about, despite their pronouncements that they are not racist or work with racists. Erick and Joyce are just making it ever more obvious!
