Friday Event 07-01-20 18:25 S.S.
This Friday, an event has been planned that is scheduled to bring several groups together. The Black Lives Matter group, and a Latino group. The East Side & Seaside Solidarity March will see one group set out at 10 a.m. from the Foods Co. parking lot in East Salinas, walking (or skating/biking/driving) to the new Salinas Police Department and then the District Attorney’s Office, before setting out for the soccer field at CSU Monterey Bay. Some of the demonstrators plan on walking, biking or roller skating the entire 13 miles from Salinas, but organizers are providing transportation for those who can’t make that journey on their own power. In Seaside, another group will set out at 1 p.m. from Greater Victory Temple, with a plan to arrive at the soccer field at 3 p.m.
There, organizers plan on creating altars to those who have died at the hands of law enforcement.
