    1. Over 200 people (a sea of red) at this Country Club intersection, including Robin Hiller, E.D. of Voices for Education and Eloise Carrillo, former Sam Hughes Elem. School principal. Also supporters at Treat Ave. and Tucson Blvd. — about 100 more at least. Lots of cars/trucks honking as they drove by. Good civics lesson for the children/youth present, about labor unions and strikes for better pay/funding. Even 94 year old Martha Ortiz and son Quintin, who marched with Cesar Chavez were present. Let’s see what happens this week with this Arizona teacher strike, with most of the Tucson School Districts closing tomorrow.
