Marcha Migrante VI
Shot the Marcha Migrantes VI at Borderfield State Park the other day and there was a nice turn-out. About 50 activists from the U.S. side and about 100 from the Mexican side joined in to kick-off a 5 day, 125 mile march through the mountains and desert enroute to Calexico. The goal is to bring attention to migrants who have died while crossing the border. They'll visit a gravesite, meet with mayors, help fill water containers in the desert for traveling migrants, and various other activities to promote the cause. Good people doing this for a good cause.
