(To read his comments, go here:
This is important because there is a climate of racism in Newport Beach that needs to be addressed. All people that hate racism are invited to enjoy some delicious food, and be as Mexican (or ethnic) as you wanna be, without fear of repression.
When: Saturday, July 12, 2003, beginning at 10 AM
Where: Corona Del Mar State Beach, on the grassy areas near lifeguard station 4, at Ocean Blvd. and Breakers Dr., click here for a map http://www.aztlan.net/cdm_state_beach.htm
How: Bring food (especially raw food, we won't have a grill), musical instruments, noise makers, blankets, etc. This event is free (with the exception that the beach will gouge you for parking).
