A protest against “Operation Return To Sender” took place in the Watsonville Plaza on September 24th. Cars honked in support as people lined Main Street holding signs calling for a world without borders, dignity for workers, black and brown unity and solidarity with immigrants. A circle was formed and people from Watsonville discussed how the community has been affected by immigration raids. Watsonville city council candidate Mireya Gomez and councilman Manuel Bersamin, Santa Cruz city council candidate Simba Kenyatta and councilman Tony Madrigal spoke at the rally as well as teachers, organizers and other concerned people.
