Salas and Sanchez Leading March to Madison


30 marchers of Obreros Unidos (United Workers) march from Wautoma to Madison on Highway 21 to petition lawmakers to hold farms and food industry corporations accountable for better working conditions for migrant farm workers. Jesus Salas, in front leading the march, is holding a microphone. Next to him is Salvador Sanchez, also a march leader. Two men behind Salas carry images of Our Lady of Guadalupe. One man in glasses is carrying the National Farm Workers Association banner with the Aztec eagle symbol. To the right, a man is holding the American flag. With Father Garrigan, in the middle of the march, are two men holding signs that say "Juntarnos para ser reconocidos. Hablar para ser oidos. La raza tiene causa"/ "Join us to be recognized. Speak to be heard. The race has cause."
