The May 1 Boycott and Walkout
Looks like our friends at Democracy Unlimited are keeping busy. They've sent out notice of a march in support of "Migrant and Undocumented Workers" that starts at 7th and Broadway in Eureka at 10am, then heads to the courthouse. This is part of the upcoming nationwide protest of proposed stricter immigration enforcement.
Proving that our great minds in the State Senate have more than enough time on their hands, the Democrats (it was a party line vote) passed a resolution in support of the protest. Cooler heads prevailed in the State Assembly where the issue wasn't brought up.
I know I've said before that much of what goes on in Sacramento shouldn't be government business. This is definitely one of those instances. But I'm sure they feel better after passing that resolution, don't you think?
I have the feeling that, except for the rallies getting news coverage, no one will notice any effects from this walkout. Just another non- event to make people feel good about themselves.
