Families Belong Together March in Solvang
By an edhat reader
On Saturday 150 Santa Ynez Valley residents and visitors participated in the nationwide "Families Belong Together" march. Wendy Mota from Congressman Carbajal's office and Solvang march organizer Elizabeth Osborne addressed the marchers and onlookers. They decried the inhumanity of separating families and detaining children, and emphasized the need for citizen activism to fight this outrageous treatment of human beings.
After marching through Solvang, participants lined both sides of Highway 246, chanting and waving signs, and cheering when passing drivers responded by honking their horns or giving a big thumbs up.
