Milwaukee, WI - Around 100 people, mostly Chicanos and Mexicanos, marched through downtown here, July 29, to protest racist Arizona’s SB1070 and HB2281 laws. They held banners reading, "We will not comply," and, "We are ALL immigrants."

A ten by twenty-five foot banner with the bold words "No SB1070 in WI" was hung from a parking structure. Students from MEChA de Milwaukee and SDS spoke at the rally. Demonstrators chanted, "No papers, no fear. Immigrants are marching here!" Passersby greeted the demonstrators with thumbs up and honked their horns to express support.
