Gringos for Baja - UNITE IN PROTEST!


As friends of Baja, you know that the fear of traveling here has crippled our Mexican brothers' livelihood. Unemployment is rampant and small businesses are closing daily. We also know that the "popular media" have brainwashed even the most devoted Baja travelers. Those of us who live here, or still visit, know we are safer now in Baja than ever before. However, that message has not been communicated by the media.

I ask you join me in a protest against the yellow journalism practiced by the San Diego Union, ABC Channel 10 S.D., and Clear Channel Communications - broadcasting San Diego's number one xenophobe, Roger Hedgecock. Also, bring tambourines, maracas, clave, drums, whatever to make some noise.

Our objective is to generate media coverage for delivering "our side of the story".

TUESDAY MAY 25, AT 1:00 PM AT THE NBC STUDIOS, 225 BROADWAY – DOWNTOWN SAN DIEGO, A FEW BLOCKS FROM THE TROLLEY LINE

(The least offensive of S.D. major media outlets, most likely to grant us an interview condemning the competition, and ideally located downtown)

BRING SIGNS, IF AT ALL POSSIBLE, WE WILL ARRANGE TO HAVE A BANNER MADE FOR US TO MARCH BEHIND

PLEASE CONTACT LEROY JOSE AMATE PEREZ, GRINGOS FOR BAJA ORGANIZOR AT 619 819 9369. MEX. TEL. 646 1766759 - ASSIST WITH TRANSPORTATION SPREAD THE WORD!
