So you think the Gran Marcha was all about the immigration law, did you? NAHHH. It is an interdimensional karmic battle of RIG-VEDIC BHAGVAD GITA proportions! That's the one where KRISHNA teaches ARJUNA to fight elegantly. To fight right. To realize that GOD AND TIME will show you who is right and to be OPEN to the whispering of  your own, moral compass while you fight. That you're not to worry, just pick a team and fight for them with valor. Take risks of death, but never forsake truth and always listen to KRISHNA and don't hurt someone who MAY BE telling the truth a tad better than you, and who is every bit as noble as you are. Krishna tells Arjuna that this war is just a big waking up process and that waking is more important than the warring. That this 'war' was destined since the dawn of history. Two families --the Montagues and the Capulets of some ancient day --are going to go at it. Doesn't matter which side you're on, just how well you evolve thru the ardors of battle.. FOR A GROUP OF PHOTOS THAT WILL TAKE YOUR BREATH AWAY. READ what each PICKET CARD sez, then come back here and read this below.

(AP) LOS ANGELES The marching orders were clear: Carry American flags and pack the kids, pick up your trash and wear white for peace and for effect.

Many of the 500,000 people who crammed downtown Los Angeles on Saturday to protest legislation that would make criminals out of illegal immigrants learned where, when and even how to demonstrate from the Spanish-language media. According to reports, one single DJ at an FM station started it all.

For English-speaking America, the mass protests in Los Angeles and other U.S. cities over the past few days have been surprising for their size and seeming spontaneity.

But they were organized, promoted or publicized for weeks by Spanish-language radio hosts and TV anchors as a demonstration of Hispanic pride and power.

In Milwaukee, where at least 10,000 people rallied last week, one radio station manager called some employers to ask that they not fire protesters for skipping work. In Chicago, a demonstration that drew 100,000 people received coverage on local television more than a week in advance.

"This was a much bigger story for the Latino media," said Felix Gutierrez, a professor at the University of Southern California's Annenberg School for Communication. "If the mainstream media had been
paying better attention, there would not have been the surprise about
the turnout."

Adrian Velasco first learned of House legislation to overhaul  immigration policy on Los Angeles' Que Buena 105.5 FM. Over two weeks, the 30-year-old illegal immigrant soaked up details about the planned march against the bill from Hispanic TV and radio. On Saturday, he andthree friends headed downtown.

"They told all the Hispanic people to go and support these things," Velasco said. "They explained a lot. They said, 'Here's what we're going to do."'

One of those doing the most talking was El Piolin, a syndicated morning show radio host who is broadcast in 20 cities.

El Piolin, whose real name is Eduardo Sotelo and whose nickname means "Tweety Bird," persuaded colleagues from 11 Spanish-language radio stations in Los Angeles to talk up the rally on air.

He said exphe devised the idea of telling protesters to wear white and carry flags to symbolize their peaceful intent and love of the United States. He also urged parents to bring their children to minimize chances of violence and reminded everyone to bring plenty of water and trash bags.

"I was talking about how we need to be united to demonstrate that we're not bad guys and we're not criminals," said Sotelo, 35, who crossed into the United States as a teenager and became legal in 1996.

In Milwaukee, the Spanish-language station WDDW 104.7 made a point of publicizing the House legislation and the protest against it on its morning and drive-time shows two weeks ahead of time.

Operations manager Armando Ulloa said his goal was at least 10,000 people -- and police estimated that was what the rally attracted. After the march, Ulloa said, he called some employers and asked them to be
lenient on protesters who missed their shifts. In Los Angeexples, 10 prime-time Spanish-language news anchors filmed a promotion urging demonstrators to show respect, said Julio Cesar Ortiz, a television reporter who covers immigration.

"The Spanish media said, 'Do it in a proper way. Do it in a way where's there's pride behind it when you're done,"' Ortiz said.

Telemundo Chicago, a Spanish-language TV station, began its coverage blitz 1 1/2 weeks before a recent rally, though there was no urging that viewers attend, said news director Esteban Creste.

"We just told them what was going on," Creste said. "While we were not trying to mobilize people, it might have prompted people to decide to go there."

The protests continued Tuesday in at least four states, with thousands of students leaving school again in California, Arizona, Texas and Nevada.

In Los Angeles, the numbers were far smaller than the tens of thousands who marched Monday. Authorities thwarted efforts to block freeway traffic, rounding up some youngsters and issuing truancy citations.

In Phoenix, steudents marched to the state Capitol for the second day in a row. In Las Vegas, they rallied near the Strip after being directed away from casinos. And in Dallas, students crowded in front of City Hall, waving Mexican and Salvadoran flags and shouting "We can do it" in Spanish.

The protests jammed roads. A Dallas school district spokesman said a girl's hand was severed when the sport utility vehicle she was in sped into an intersection and overturned.


WHEN I SAW the photos of the gran marcha and the full extent of the AZTLAN MOVEMENT, and when I saw the map....MY MOUTH WENT TOO DRY! I was told to google aztlan. But I was shaking so I could hardly GOOGLE! amazing. THE USA is like a body which over years of bad management, has a very sudden immune sys drop and suddenly you realize it was always host to a SWARM of angry bugs who HATE YOUR GUTS.

(Having had salmonella three separate times since xmas, and never before in 65 yrs, this image comes to me as a metaphor of choice. Parenthetically, the immune system of the global chicken market or poultry market is really also in trouble. I rare cooked chicken for yrs, never bothered me a bit!)

But what if AS BELOW SO ABOVE. What if the BIG COSMIC CHICKEN PLANET we live on with its dominant first world species (usually firmly entrenched in northern hemisphere,) is so riddled with ANGRY moctezuma revenge BUGS in our gut that... the usually slumbering TIGER in the JUNGLE is about to rise up and make huge demands ....if not outright war!!

Do we have enough penicillin in the house? (Parenthetically,the two caplets of penicillin I took gave me worse IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) for weeks after that the cure was worse than the illness! So won't do that twice! Thusly I deduce that WAR IS NOT AN OPTION!

I am assured by students of parisiteology that the host usually will not be killed by a parasite. That the parasitic form is alive, evolving and can lunch of your extra food, only RETROVIRUSES like AIDS are stupid enuf to kill a host off.

Being a host entails being friendly, sharing food. Amusing and even employing the parasite. Perhaps theologically we can work something out? Sign me, longtime host to parasites -- being a single mother of four, and mine didn't kill me! (One even gave me a vcr and a dirt devil vacuum!)

One more theosophic point. We were the invader who killed the host. We invaded their land. Shot them into submission. Gave them poisoned blankets so they'd get small box. We occupied. We colonized. We genocided. They fought hard but after two hundred years of male explorers, they knew the dance was over first time they saw a white man bring his squaw and wagon with him. Because then the white males would get protective and paranoid and territorial and start occupying fertile valleys instead of just marching thru them. They were right. First thing we did was hand the RED MAN the  long marches. We moved all the INDIANS we could reach right  out of eastern and southern sides of the USA, at gunpoint. March or die. They marched and they died. Then, between 1836 and 1848 we had to cross that section of land we'd assigned them, because we got Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, California. So we killed the Indians in the middle of the country, out on the parched plains. Then we reached down and did the same to the Mexicans in their own country Tejas.  Can you imagine the karma this nation has?

It's taken nearly 200 years, but gitback has been arranged. The grandchildren of the people we killed or marched out want to live here and have jobs. That's why I like Aztlan pro-mojado movement And I loved the SECOND Gran Marcha in 2007 where the L.A. cops beat the sass out of the crowds, striking women, children, old men, reporters. It showed who had the class.  And who had the CLASS ACTION (as a lot of Mexicans were hurt badly by cops, their phones cameras broken but their cuates weren't and they got pics so everybody was able to sue! for GRANDES PESOS!
