Centro CSO stands with Black community at MLK parade in Los Angeles
Los Angeles, CA – A contingent from the Boyle Heights-based Centro CSO received enthusiastic responses from the Black public at the annual MLK parade, which took place in the heart of the African American community. The delegation from Centro CSO carried a large banner reading “Dump Trump and right-wing racists.” Many in the large crowds applauded and chanted, “Dump trump now.” A CSO member carried a poster urging Black and brown unity.
Centro CSO felt it very important to participate in the march to show solidarity with the Black community in the fight against police terror and to support the struggle for equality and self-determination.
The delegation also participated in the festival at the historic Leimert Park with a variety of music, dance, MLK speeches and great food.
