You are cordially invited to join us for the dedication & unveiling of the Historical Marker honoring the 1966 Farm worker Strike and March.
In the Summer of 1966, hundreds of men, women and children harvesting cantaloupes in Starr County organized with the United Farm Workers and demanded growers raise wages from .40 cents to $1.25 an hour. on July 4, 1966 strikers began a peaceful 400 mile march to Austin, TX. On July 7, Mayor Al Ramirez greeted the marchers passing through the city of Edinburg on their way to a mass at the shrine of Our Lady of San Juan served by Bishop Humberto Madeiros. Farm workers continued through Weslaco, Edcouch-Elsa, and other South Texas communities towards the state capitol where they were received by hundreds of supporters.

Daniella Marrero answered 2015-11-16 11:42:29 -0600Q: Tell us why you're fasting.
A: Testing survey.
LUPE and the RGV Equal Voice Network have begun a 40-day fast chain, Fast and Prayer against Militarization and for Citizenship (Ayuno y Oracion en Contra de la Militarización y a Favor de Ciudadanía), to deliver a strong moral argument for immigration reform: reforms to immigration and border enforcement should treat everyone with the compassion they deserve as human beings.
We are fasting so that our leaders and the nations as a whole passes comprehensive immigration reform without further militarization of the borders. We hope that our leaders recognize the equal worth and dignity of all human beings, especially immigrants, and recognize their right to be here, to work and pursuing a better life.
Each day at 12pm we will gather at LUPE’s San Juan office, located at the corner of Cesar Chavez Rd and Business 83, where individuals will begin their fast and will share their reasons for making the 24 hour sacrifice. Those who cannot join the daily ceremony can join the virtual fast by changing their Facebook profile picture.
