MORNING RALLY: 9-11am at La Placita Olvera, 1 Olvera St
This rally and march are in honor of Blanca Cardenas, a nursing mother who was deported to Mexico after LAPD arrested her for defending her fraudulently foreclosed home from illegal eviction despite the fact that she is married to a U.S. Citizen and a mother of 2 U.S. Citizen children. We are hoping to get thousands into the streets but we cannot do that without your help. Sign up to volunteer here: http://occupyfightsforeclosures.nationbuilder.com/

There will also be demonstrations on print-making and stencil design throughout the day.
